lyrics

I used to pull my coat up close around my face
Against the wind
I used to walk with eyes down low and a hurried gait,
My hands tucked in

But how things change
The sun, the snow, the rain
How I'm glad to walk in them just the same

chorus:
Now we wake up when the rooster crows,
Out the doorway and away we go
You just lead the way and I will follow
We waste time with no regrets
We kiss and run and jump and joke and jest
Until we tumble into bed

Oh the goosebumps on your arm, our toes in the stream,
The wind on your face
The days are made only to see and smell and hear,
To talk and touch and taste

And how folks stare,
Your smile, your sun-bleached hair
They say to themselves don't those two make a pair

chorus

Back before things changed,
I had such, such big ideas

Now we wake up when the rooster crows,
Out the doorway and away we go
You just lead the way and I will follow
We waste time with no regrets
We kiss and run and jump and joke and jest
Until we tumble into bed
With no regrets
Until the crows wake us again
