All The Time

This song is by We're About 9 and appears on the album Paperdust :: Stardust (2008).

I expected to see you racing around
Like a lovebird in search of her soul's other sound
Majestic and frantic like wake from a falls
Or saving the world from nothing at all
All the time
All the time

But Erin the third time that I called your name
I could tell that you would never answer again
Then you packed up your memories and headed away
Still I bellow your calling out even today
All the time
All the time

Like a rocking chair
On a mountain top
You are sitting there offering promise
And the wind cradles you
Like an art form so rare
For the story that must have carried you there

Now, I have my hobbies and I have my games
(Pick-up-sticks, backgammon, solitaire,)
Today I changed the picture in our old oak frame
(And I play chess on both sides of the board on some Saturdays)
To a painting I made of a photo inside
(When I see petals I count them, when I see edges I straighten them)
That your father once took of me and my bride
(When there's a mess I sort through the memories of me and my bride)
It's you in your white gown, it's me in my bow tie
You with your blushing cheeks, me with my happy eyes
It's you with your parasol, it's me with my hat
Now we'll go down in history looking like that
All the time
All the time

So much of this time you've been by my side
It's been your heart and mine
Now it's me and my great divide
It's me giving each day a fair try
It's you and the mountain
It's you and the sky
It's me wanting to come home to you
All the time
All the time

Like a rocking chair
On a mountain top
You are sitting there offering promise
And the wind cradles you
Like an art form so rare
For the story that must have carried you there
For the story that must have carried you there
For the story that must have carried you there
