It’s three in the morning on Halloween,
Watch Donna the Buffalo with the herd
Out in the wide world things aint too tidy,
But Tara and Jeb brought love right on back
Three years since we met at get off the grid
One of the best gigs that I ever did.
Outside the smokebush glows bright in the rain
In the field gentle dawn flowers again
It’s perfume sweet as the song from robin
Who gives a jot about being locked in.
Hold hands together now, wait for the sun
Soonish it will come and we shall have fun.
Meanwhile let’s search for the best in each day,
Come with me my love let’s go out and play.
