i've long loved this song. it's been on many a playlist for me and the other day, while river and i were reading blogs and he started to get fussy, i opened my itunes and started playing this song to calm him down. you know it's a good song when he stops and listens for the entire thing. he, of course, did just that for this song. but while he was in a trance, i started singing it and then, i started crying. before i knew it, one verse in, it had an entirely new meaning for me. i wasn't singing this song to my husband that day, i was singing it to my baby boy. and save for a few lines, it fit magically.
been up all night, staring at you, wondering what's on your mind.
every word you say, i think, i should write down. don't want to forget come daylight.
happy to lay here. just happy to be here. i'm happy to know you.
have you heard this song, don't you just love it?
