Every Minute of the Day

i could be holding you all morning
and still holding you at noon
i can hope the day is coming
i can hope its coming soon
i can fantasize affection
keep dreaming it all night
because the truth is I don’t tire
being squeezed with all your might

every minute of the day
every minute of the day

outside the sky is falling
it can keep falling as it may
but whether the sun is shining
or the clouds are wet and grey
there’s a blanket on the bed
there’s a flower in your hair
truth is i won’t complain
if we just stay right there


there’s lots of work to do in texas
that’s true all around
but sometimes we just must realize
to this bedpost we are bound
there are things that need to be discovered
they must be heard and felt and seen
some will look to outside
but i’ll look in between


“Every Minute of the Day” first appeared on the 2005 album, For the Moment.

Just a simple love song, about the joys of domesticity, and sex.
