springtime

And then springtime was arriving and the clouds were white instead of gray

Snow ran down into the gutters and the crocuses woke up to start the day

And I couldn’t help but smile even as my eyes were growing wet

Turn my face to the horizon trying to slow the beating in my chest

 

So give me blue skies in a bottle and give me sunshine in a pill

Gimme smiles, gimme laughter in a jar I can keep on my window sill

Cause when the world starts getting colder, I’ll feel a decade older you know I will

So give me blue skies in a bottle and give me sunshine in a pill

 

Was it what my parents taught me? Was it just how I was born?

Cause I’m always counting all the lines around my eyes against the things I haven’t done

And every pebble on the sidewalk, every blade of grass that tickled my bare toes

Is gone, is always gone away to someplace I can’t go

 

So give me blue skies in a bottle and give me sunshine in a pill

Gimme smiles, gimme laughter in a jar I can keep on my window sill

Cause when the world starts getting colder, I’ll feel a decade older you know I will

So give me blue skies in a bottle and give me sunshine in a pill

Give me blue skies in a bottle and give me sunshine in a pill
