me | song_Ten Feet Away

      TenFeetAway


Sittin’ watchin’, my baby talkin’
As she climbs up your dress
Now don’t you start stoppin’
I just thought I’d drop in
And found you both a mess
Well, your still my flower
Who ain’t seen a shower
Since this baby was born
Well, don’t you once worry
There’s no kind of hurry today
So both you keep playing
‘Cause I’m happy staying
And watching here ten feet away

chorus
There’s only one problem
With being so close
Sometimes you’re just too close to see
All you’ve done, all you do,
How good you are to me
Is perfectly clear, from ten feet away

It took a while for me to ask out
The woman who now is my wife
But just one dinner and I found the friend
To join me to share the same life
Most times it’s charming
But others alarming
When I got nothing to say
But anger turns softer
And then into laughter and play
When I take a breather
Give my blessings a count,
From ten feet away

chorus

I know I’m your shoulder
But I’m seven years older
Besides that I am a man
Seems we tire early
From holding things in
And doing best as we can
If I should pass on
I want you to go on
And live a full life everyday
But if something happens
You’re not sure you can handle, just pray
And know I’ll be with you
The same as before
But ten feet away

chorus
But I’m kind of shy, in a loud way…
