lyrics

MISS YOU SAM
by Britt K. Arnesen

Draw a picture of your heart now
I'll play a song for only you
Of the time when last I saw you
Of the numbered days that we once knew
Miss you Sam

Potatoes for our supper
On a rosemary day
Magnolias from your sweetheart
I'd give you every flower god ever made
All for you Sam

A taller tree now you're climbing
Reaching up for the sky when
I grabbed your hand in a dream
And woke before I could say
Miss you Sam

Another penny from my pocket
To the fountain I did throw
Mumbling "I'm sorry"
In a language only you and I know
Miss you Sam

Then I feel your wind out walking
The lagoon, the driftwood caves
I hear your voice in salted hollows
See your smile upon madrona waves
Miss you Sam

A taller tree now you're climbing
Reaching up for the sky when
I held my breath in a dream
And woke before I could say
Love you Sam
