There’s more to me than what you see Free as the wind but my roots go deep I’m grabbing hold of the whole wide world But in my heart I’m just small town girl Who likes a little bit of dirt on her hands Pull on my boots and work the land Fall into bed with some aches and pains A good reward for a good long day (Doots) The city nights will do just fine With a friend and a glass of wine But when I’m sitting all alone I think about my life back/at home Where the coffee pot is always on The door’s unlocked, the lights are on Friends and family come and go The kitchen table’s always full (Doots) All the birds know how to fly away When the season is done So I trust that I will find my way Cause I remember where I’m from When I was five on grandpa’s knee Little bird in a big oak tree He told me one day I’d go far Just remember who you are Keep a little bit of dirt on your hands Pull on your boots and work the land Fall into bed with some aches and pains A good reward for a good long day (Doots)

I wasn’t looking when you walked into my life But it was like you had always been there When you held me you opened my eyes And suddenly I was aware That loving you is where I wanna be Darling can’t you see That If I'm a wave you are the wind that stirs me If I'm the sun you are the sky surrounding If I'm a bird you are the song I'm singing You were made for me There’s a story that was written in the stars It’s always been waiting for us And it tells me even if we’re apart What we have will still be enough You’re the one that I was dreaming of I’ll always need your love ‘cause If I'm a wave you are the wind that stirs me If I'm the sun you are the sky surrounding If I'm a bird you are the song I'm singing You were made for me

There was once a town with a house on a hill The tree in the yard where the moon stood still And the moon listened in while we danced and dreamed The life we’d make and the people we’d be But she left one night when the moon was awake He never came back and I couldn’t stay No final words no kiss goodbye God only knows the reason why How many lovers has the moon seen Walk away from her love Walk away from their dreams Does she care in a way of what might have been By the tree and the house on the hill The garden still waits for the seed to be sewn The trail through the woods is all over grown And you and me and the old porch swing Will never rock our kids to sleep Cause he left one night when the moon was awake He never came back and I couldn’t stay CHORUS

The sun is looking down from way up high I can see the moonlight in your eyes You say, “let go play amid the stars” Spinning me in circles in the light Caught in between day and night. There’s a thousand reasons to move on Too many hearts have come along. And now you are asking me to hold your hand To take a chance before the moment’s gone. Caught in between right and wrong. In a crazy space when I admit that I am afraid But I don’t know if I can fight your gravity If I decide to count to three and take a leap a faith I hope the universe is watching over me. Caught in between. Maybe there’s a place for you and I. Suspended out in space frozen in time. Where all of our mistakes are far below. You will never need me to decide. Caught in between day and night.
