With Him

Sitting across the table from the one you most adore
The words flowing freely from your lips, and from his
The table is filled to the brim with your preferred set
And he sits there with his own as you lead the way
It’s a day in the life, a day from this day on
Sitting across from him

Sitting across the table from the one you most trust
The silence is comfortable when it is with him
He eats from every plate with unabashed pleasure
And you take a sip as you offer him more
It’s a day in the life, a day from this day on
Sitting across from him

He calls it a night when you know it’s time
And the both of you leave side by side
He takes the wheel and takes it slow
(At least slower than he did before)
It’s a day in the life, a day from this day
Sitting next to him

He calls it a night when you pull in to park
And you have to tempt him to later
It’s not all that hard and the night goes on
With more talk and drink inside
It’s a day in the life, a day from this day
Sitting next to him

You should tell him to go, it’s about that time
But he’s so comfortable sitting there
You can’t make that call and you let him be
Quite happy to see him in the morning
it’s a day in the life, a day from this day
With him still there

You should tell him what’s up
But he’s so comfortable with how it is
You can’t make that call and you keep mum
Quite happy to be allowed to see him in the morning
It’s a day in the life, a day from this night
With him still there

When he wakes up he is on the couch
And he is in the armchair
He’s not that far away
A fingertip’s breadth away
It’s a day in the life
With him
