I couldn't tear you out
Now you're the pages I can't live without
And if I've used up all my words on you,so be it

I couldn't wear you down
Now it seems I wear you like a dressing gown
Underneath the things I want the world to see
I keep you close to me

And every day's an anniversary of something sweet you said to me that I forgot

Didn't want to tie you down
Now you're the horse I ride all over town
And if a little spirit broke along the way
You don't show it

And every day's an anniversary of something sweet you said to me that I forgot
And if there's no time to celebrate forgive me baby, my intentions were good
But the everyday got in the way like we knew it would

I didn't want to hear you out
And I didn't want to be the one you dreamed about
So now I do my dreaming laying next to you
Instead of sending checks to you

These rings are the only gold we share
We ain't got no silver in our silverware
But we've got Bittersweet and Goldenrod and Burnt Sienna
We got Timberwolf and Tumbleweed and Blue
And as we pick each one up off the floor again
I catch the shining light in you
It happens every day for the lucky few

Yes, every day's an anniversary of something sweet you said to me that I forgot
And if there's no time to celebrate forgive me baby, my intentions were good
But the everyday got in the way like we knew it would
Yeah, the everyday gets in the way now it's understood
