Taking It In - 2010 - Remaster - Lyrics

Morning, sing me a song
Afternoon, bring it along
Nighttime, show me a friend
Say it again, send a good dream my way

Wednesday, feeling just fine
I got to say time on my hands
Friday, look at them run
Show me some fun, taking the sunshine in

God knows you've got to give yourself time to think these days
Lord knows you've got to take enough time to look both ways
The pieces fly by so quickly now

Laura, look at you walk
I swear you've got eyes in my head
I'd like to follow you down, show you around
Borrow the crown you wear

Bacon, lie on the plate
Two black-eyed peas wait on the side
Gravy, chicken and rice, isn't it nice?
Tell me the price of food

What happens when the answers they give you
Aren't good enough? Baby, no
What happens when it rains for eight days
On your week off?
You know you can't buy tomorrow, no

It's all a matter of opening up your eyes
And looking around 'cause it's all there
Yeah, baby, said it's all there
I said, taking the sunshine in
Yeah, yeah, yeah, whoa, baby, yeah
