Lyrics: To An Aging Love

My aging love your heart is an evening

Golden hour sometime in the middle of July

With wind that blows hiccups and whispers secrets

Of what our days looked like

My aging love your heart is an Eden

Western RedCedar growing inside

Teach me topiary and other funny things

So I can shape you a bed with a vine

 

My Valentine, my Summer Wine

 

Since the day you stole mine away

The rhythm of your heart has calmed mine

The rhythm of your heart has calmed mine

 

My aging love your heart is an earthquake

Wild rhythm that moved me, that tried to shake you down

Don't you dare leave me before I give you permission

And dear heart, don't you break mine

 

Be fair to me, have mercy

 

Since the day you stole mine away

The rhythm of your heart has calmed mine

The rhythm of your heart has calmed mine

 

Rest, my baby, if need be

But don't make this hospital your home

Rest, my baby, if need be

But remember your vow not to leave me alone

 

My aging love, they say your heart is a midnight

A day fully wound down, old Grandfather clock

My aging love, they don't understand your light

No they don't see the morning in your eyes

No they don't see the morning in your eyes

Darling there's morning

Darling there's morning

Darling there's morning
