Lover Girl (Herring Caroline)

Looking for a hand to hold There to pull and push against Even now we're dancing Longing for a place to know Where branches reach, lantana grow And butterflies take their poses Come My lover girl Did you grow an inch today Once you were a tiny thing And before that God's dream Goodness comes to those who wait Give them love, and sacrifice Because it's your turn now Come My lover girl We're as new as scheming eyes We're as old as mother and child We're as new as scheming eyes We're as old as mother and child Just a little piece of us Marveling at all of you Head, heart, shoulder, shoulder Go and close the drapes I made Put your little hands together And pray for your mama Come My lover girl
