Little Things

lyrics

There’s something you should know.
My love, before I go,
how you set my heart aglow, with all you are.

How you smile when you are weak,
And the way you stroke my cheek,
How you’ll always be unique, my guiding star.

And I get easily obsessed with small things
Like the flutters in my chest, your voice brings
and when I finally come to rest, it all rings true
Thank you for the little things you do.

I could wander for a while,
in the wonders of your smile,
every day, another mile, behind your eyes.

And I love it when you drink,
and your inhibitions shrink
and you make that dirty wink you can’t disguise.

And I get easily obsessed with small things
Like the flutters in my chest, your voice brings
and when I finally come to rest, it all rings true
Thank you for the little things you do.

How I love your gentle tone,
When your grandma’s on the phone,
and how you’ve always known my crazy ways

How you mumble in your sleep,
And how laughter makes you weep,
The memories we keep and lazy days.
