Our conversation was short and sweet
It nearly swept me
Off a my feet
And I'm back in the rain

Oh, you are on dry land
You made it there somehow
You're a big girl now

Bird on the horizon, sittin' on a fence
He's singin' his song for me
At his own expense
And I'm just like that bird

Oh, singin' just for you
I hope that you can hear
Hear me singin' through these tears

Time is a jet plane, it moves too fast
Oh, but what a shame
That all we've shared can't last
And I can change, I swear

Oh, see what you can do
I can make it through
You can make it too

Love is so simple, to quote a phrase
You've known it all the time
I'm learnin' it these days
Oh, I know where I can find you

On, in somebody's room
It's a price I have to pay
You're a big girl all the way

A change in the weather
Is known to be extreme
But what's the sense of changing horses in midstream?
And I'm going out of my mind

Oh, with a pain that stops and starts
Like a corkscrew to my heart
Ever since we've been apart
