Cheryl Wheeler "All The Live Long Day" by Cheryl Wheeler (Cheryl Wheeler)

1st Verse

The sun is shinin', makin' this room so bright
And the cats are sleepin', right up on the table
Breakin' all the rules in plain sight
And there's a cloud covered moon floatin' in the blue
Not waitin' for the sun to go away
I just wish I could walk with you and talk with you
All the live long day

2nd Verse

We never really had a winter
It never came, and now it's gone
And the days grow longer, like a late night road
Like the odds you'll come back home
But I don't mind wasting my time
Waitin' for the ache to go away
I don't mind telling you it's what I do
All the live long day


All the live long day, I wonder what I'll do
(And) I don't see no way of getting over you

3rd Verse

The boys were in the back field
Sorting out the who and when
It's like cat graffiti, but they read it with their nose
And it's written from the other end
Though James takes it in with a different spin
He likes to read the Sniff and Spray
It's just them and me, and my ennui
All the live long day

(Repeat Chorus)

4th Verse

I was watchin' the sunset
And wishin' you we're watchin' too
Through the winter branches
Drop jaw red, Maxfield Parrish blue
(And) then a windy night with the stars so bright
The trees just bow and sway

I've been close to blue and missing you
All the live long day
I've been close to blue and missing you
All the live long day
