Telephones ringing jet planes a leaving

Another deadline to beat

Like summer breeze on a starlit night

Oh I thought I knew the joy that I would never find

In the simple things.....

Verse 3


Friendly chatter the sounds of laughter

At a backyard barbecue

Like "daddy I love you"

But in these later days I've got another song to sing
