Your Song

Dear Hubby,

From the get-go, we have both loved this song. This is one of those that whenever it plays, you always grab my hand and it's one of the few where you will sing to me. We bonded right away over our love for Elton John. Do you remember the night that we danced in the kitchen of our apartment to this? Hailey was in your arms, and Jimi was on the counter batting at Hailey's hair. We all got the giggles and we didn't make it through the whole song. But here we go....

It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mindI hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

Life has gotten infinitely better since you entered my world.
Love you.
