lyrics

Had a rare day off
on a day in May
so we took the old car
and drove it faraway

We stopped out where
the trees stand quiet
and walked and talked
of how the world conspires.

To take our time away from this
working such long hours just to live
Don't wanna live like they do
I wanna build a new world for you.

And as the sun went down
over cedar tops
and you scratched our names
in the cooling rocks

you lay back on
the side of me
and sighed and said
“this is all I need”

and I felt all our years
like they were just today
and I pulled you close
knowing there's a way

don't wanna live like they do
I wanna build a new world for you.
