soft and sweet, let me hold it close and keep it here with me...



today gave us the loveliest of weather. it had my heart skipping right to spring and i found myself humming "aeroplane over the sea" on several occassions. that song always brings me a lot of joy-- it surrounds me with thoughts of some of life's best {warm weathered} things: sunkissed cheeks, glass soda pop bottles, tomato sandwiches, laying in the tall grass, whispering secrets to the wind, picking wildflowers and love... in it's sweetest most innocent form.  there aren't many songs out there that bring me such peace and contentment.   it was the perfect prelude to valentine's day and the finest theme song i could pick for a day spent in sweats (please join me for a bonfire this summer where i liberate myself from such atrocious attire!), munching on girl scout cookies, and soaking up my little ones and a weekend full of friends and happy visits!

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all around the sun
What a beautiful dream
That could flash on the screen
In a blink of an eye and be gone from me
Soft and sweet
Let me hold it close and keep it here with me

And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly
From the aeroplane over the sea
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be
In the arms of all I'm keeping here with me

What a curious life
We have found here tonight
There is music that sounds from the street
There are lights in the clouds
Anna's ghost all around
Hear her voice as it's rolling and ringing through me
Soft and sweet
How the notes all bend and reach above the trees

Now, how I remember you
How I would push my fingers through your mouth
To make those muscles move
That made your voice so smooth and sweet
And now we keep where we don't know
All secrets sleep in winter clothes
With one you loved so long ago
Now he don't even know his name

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all around the sun
And when we meet on a cloud
I'll be laughing out loud
I'll be laughing with everyone I see
Can't believe
How strange it is to be anything at all
