Turn a Page

Turn a Page
(Paul Gallagher November 22, 2017) ©

INTRO
No excuses, I blew it and I hear you, Babe
I love your smile, helps me stay brave
Our book is so big, can you and I turn a page?

VERSE
Snowflake patterns on the coffee shop window 
Inside a velvet glow of cinnamon and mistletoe
Our hands wrapped around the decorated mugs
Our eyes locked on the cappuccino art
You bite your lip; and your eyes sound the alarm
 “You didn’t call me; I feel like an apostrophe”

PRE-CHORUS
Flash .... I see the world end                 
Flash....My mind is an
Overturned cup

CHORUS
I forgot you’re my friend
Tiger here is fear
Showing up
Together we’re more than we see
Thank you for
Reminding me
You are right, I was wrong,                                                                                                    
Tell me all about it,                                                                                         
What’s going on?

VERSE
Twinkling lights and pine wreaths permeate the room
Our pocket corner is away from the                                                                                                                               Christmas tunes
I pass you the sugar and you send over the cream
Without even trying our fingers meet
You look at me and then at your sleeve
 “Could you be on time, for once; is that too much?”

PRE-CHORUS
Flash .... I see the world end                 
Flash....My mind is an
Overturned cup

CHORUS
I forgot you’re my friend
Tiger here is fear
Showing up
Together we’re more than we see
Thank you for
Reminding me
You are right, I was wrong,                                                                                                   
Tell me all about it,                                                                                         
What’s going on?

OUTRO
No excuses, I blew it and I hear you, Babe
I love your smile, helps me stay brave
Our book is so big, can you and I turn a page?
