i haven't seen this day before

if i could i would break into flower.
if i could i'd no longer be barren.
this day is filling up my room,
is coming through my door.
oh i have not seen this day before.

oh mourning dove, we'll go up to my roof.
oh mourning dove, we'll go into the sky.
this day is filling up my room,
is coming through my door.
oh i have not seen this day before.

and the cars are a stream running by me,
bend away to a place i don't know,
this day is filling up my room,
is coming through my door,
oh i have not seen this day before.

Char, you should check this group out. they are probably my favorite group and have been since my sweet sistah, Angela first introduced me to them.

All of their songs are so peaecful to me and evoke the best things in me.

I recommend you check out the album Befriended. But they are all SO good.

can't wait to check them out. the lyrics really speak to me. on the topic of music... calvin invested into a really good sound system as he is very pedantic about the way things sound. the classical sounds of vivaldi filled my ears while we were packing up the house and i wished for a moment that time could stop and that we could just sit in silence on the couch together and take it in. i know that you are the one person who would appreciate such a moment.
