Where the earth shows it's bones of wind broken stone
And the sea and the sky are one
I'm caught out of time
my blood sings with wine
and I'm running naked in the sun
There's God in the trees
I'm weak in the knees
and the sky is a painful blue
I'd like to look around but honey all I see is you

The summer city lights will soften the night
Till you think that the air is clear
I'm sitting with friends where forty five cents
will buy another glass of beer
she's got something to say
but I'm so far away that I don't know who she's talking to
Cause you just walked in the door and honey all I see is you

(chorus)
And I just want to hold you closer then I've ever held anyone before
you say you've been twice a wife
and your through with life
ah, but honey what the Hells it for?
After twenty three years you think I could find a way to let you know some how
That I wanna see your smiling face forty five year from now

Alone in the lights on stage every night
I've been reachin out to find a friend
Who know all the words
sings so she's heard
and know how all the stories end
maybe after the show she'll ask me to go home with her for a drink or two
now her smile lights her eyes
but honey All I see is you

Chorus

    General CommentOh my goodness! This song is so beautiful! Apparently Stan Rogers worked at my camp for a period of time before he got famous! We sing this song at camp and I love it! THe first verse or so is so deep!

    My InterpretationThis was a song written for his wife; Stan said it was his most-requested song.

    General CommentThe fact that he died in a plane accident when he was only 33 makes this song so sad. :(
