C C   Am
Slow down,
G         F                G
we've got time left to be lazy
        C        C           Am G     F                G
All the kids have bloomed from babies into flowers in our eyes.
          C    C    Am    G      F                G
We've got fifty good years left to spend out in the garden
         F              Em
I don't care to beg your pardon,
           Dm    G
We should live
           C C   Am G F G C C   C
until we die.


        C         C              Am                   Em F G
We were barely eighteen when we'd crossed collective hearts.
        F               Em            Dm                 G
It was cold, but it got warm when you'd barely crossed my eye.
             C           C      Am
and then you turned, put out your hand,
   G   F            G
and you asked me to dance.
        F          Em                 Dm             G
I knew nothing of romance, but it was love at second sight.


  F                G                           C C   Am G
I swear when I grow up, I won't just buy you a rose.
       F              G                             C C   Am G
I will buy the flower shop, and you will never be lonely.
F                     G
Even if the sun stops waking up over the fields
             C               C              Am
I will not leave, I will not leave 'till it's our time.
         F                         G                        C C
So just take my hand, you know that I will never leave your side.

           C         C              Am                Em F G
It was the winter of '86, and all the fields had frozen over.
        F        Em        Dm           G
So we moved to Arizona to save our only son
             C C   Am G
and now he's turning to a man,
            F                    G
although he thinks just like his mother,
      F                   Em              Dm          G
he believes we're all just lovers he sees hope in everyone.


         C          C    Am
And even though she moved away,
    G         F              G
we always get calls from our daughter.
        F                 Em
She has eyes just like her father's
         Dm                  G
they are blue when skies are grey
              C        C     Am   G
And just like him, she never stops,
       F                G
Never takes the day for granted,
F                           Em
works for everything that's handed to her,
Dm             G
Never once complains.


F                 G      C C   Am G
You think that I nearly lost you
          F               G         C C   Am G
When the doctors tried to take you away.
              F               G                C C   Am G
But like the night you took my hand beside the fire
        F       G
thirty years ago
         C
to this day
F                               G
You swore you'd be here 'til we decide that it's our time
               C                 C             Am
Well it's not time, you've never quit in all your life.
         F                         G                      C C   Am
So just take my hand, you know that I'll never leave your side.
            F                            G                      C C
You're the love of my life, you know that I'll never leave your side.

          C        C   Am G
You come home from work
         F             G
and you kiss me on the eye
              F                Em              Dm                G
You curse the dog you say that I should never feed them what is ours
           C      C      Am    G
and so we move all to the garden
        F                G
look at everything we've owned
        F              Em
now the kids are coming home
   Dm              Em F G
so I set the table
                  C
You can make the fire.
