Lately (For the most beautiful, on Earth Day)

When the world, she’s laid to rest, looking up from six feet under
And with her all hope and despair are tucked away – for forever and a day
Wondering if it had to go like this…
Why can’t we see what we’ve got til it’s gone?
Now all I miss is her sweet kiss, her warm embrace, her humble song

My baby, my baby, I need your love
You know lately I can’t seem to find my way

I see you there, can’t help but stare
cuz all that you’ve got is all I need –
my heart and soul you feed
The sun in my daytime
and the moon in my night
I’d be nothing or lost without your light
To my eyes you give sight

My baby, my baby, I need your love
You know lately I can’t seem to find my way

Wherever I go, dear, I forever know you’ll be
Let me always hold your bloody heart near
and in the sunshine we’ll be free
I’ll walk your muddy roads for now, unafraid,
and you can rain on me
Ashamed as I am for this mess that I’ve made
but much brighter days I see

My baby, my baby, I need your love
You know lately I can’t seem to find my way
My lady, lovely lady, to you I see how much I owe
And when I’m gone from here please know I wanted to stay
