SWEET AND EASY

Life is a different color
Since you came to me by way of a westerly breeze
And how you tell your stories
Of painters and picture men who captured reality
Of a halcyon highway,
Just travellers passing through nature’s poems carved in stone

Life is such a discovery
The way you’re showing me
Man of the mountain and of the sea
Your beating heart has a sweet rhyme
You see the grace of another time
Breathing life into all you see
And how you tell your stories – sweet and easy

There were those who painted pictures
And those who drew their words on a canvas in the sun
And those who carved their memories on blocks of wood from a maple tree
Your words rise, like sea winds that carry
A scented view from a landscape past, cast in stone

Life is such a discovery
The way you’re showing me
Man of the mountain and of the sea
Your beating heart has a sweet rhyme
You see the grace of another time
Breathing life into all you see

Your East was your West, where times were the best
And though you’re moving ever forward
Your heart remains above the city skyline

Life is such a discovery
I give to you what you’re giving me
Man of the mountain and of the sea
Your beating heart has a sweet rhyme
You see the grace of another time
Breathing life into all you see, all you feel

Life is such a discovery
I give to you what you’re giving me
Man of the mountain and of the sea
And how you tell your stories – sweet and easy
Sweet and easy
