Caroline Herring – Lover Girl lyrics

Looking for a hand to hold
There to pull and push against
Even now we're dancing
Longing for a place to know
Where branches reach, lantana grow
And butterflies take their poses

My lover girl

Did you grow an inch today
Once you were a tiny thing
And before that God's dream
Goodness comes to those who wait
Give them love, and sacrifice
Because it's your turn now

My lover girl

We're as new as scheming eyes
We're as old as mother and child
We're as new as scheming eyes
We're as old as mother and child

Just a little piece of us
Marveling at all of you
Head, heart, shoulder, shoulder
Go and close the drapes I made
Put your little hands together
And pray for your mama

My lover girl
