lyrics

I smell the earth & the scent lingers
Feel the midday sun on my skin
Glass is sweating between your fingers
Come on baby, you’re reeling me in
Paint’s going to peel on the old red barn
Sirens will moan, sound the alarm
Your hand brushes up against my arm
Nothing in the world could do me harm
I see your face and all the tension goes slack
When you reach for the sun, it reaches right back
When you reach for the sun, it reaches right back
There’s an invisible hand, at the helm
Leaning into the shade of this old Dutch elm
Taking a nap, to the sound of your heart
There’s plenty of time darling, before it gets dark
Paint’s going to peel…
Pull down the shades before it gets too hot
Paint’s going to peel on the old red barn
Sirens will moan, sound the alarm
your hand brushes up against my arm
nothing in the world could do me harm
I see your face and all the tension goes slack
When you reach for the sun it reaches right back
When you reach for the sun
Come on reach for the sun
I want to reach for the sun
It reaches right back
