lyrics

Met you in the morning
Weathered from the rain
You stole my coat and asked me to dance
And sparked in me a flame
That warmed my weary mind
And saved my sodden soul
Well little lady take my hand, it’s with you I wanna go.

Patrick was a drinker
A smoker and a saint
Drunk and set to play love’s game
He rolled a twelve and found a date
So with Irish eyes a-smiling
And a cry for something new
Black and white they mixed alright and learned to make-do

And I like the view
And I’ll tell you soon

So patience, love
Throw me a line
Give me wings
And teach me to fly to Boston
cuz you know I wanna go

Ease your mind
Remember today
For tomorrow talks
With nothing to say to no one
So forget about the future

But it seems this time
We might have got it right
Cuz maybe black and white can mix alright
if grey stays away and hides her face

But it seems this time
We might have got it right
Cuz oh now lady hand let’s ride this wave
don’t fight the tide or it’ll pull you away

and I like the view
and I’ll tell you soon

Met you in the morning
Weathered from the rain
But Christmas came in March that year
And Saint Nick brought a change
So in December I’m gonna miss you
And spend the holidays alone
So little lady take my hand, it’s with you I wanna go.
