HABITS and HEROES

Hoot Music, 1999

words and music by Katherine Wheatley

I woke up dreaming
In the wrong season
Jack Frost kissed
My window one hundred times

I go to bed praying
You would be staying
You would kiss me sweet and strong
Every day of my life

Go away slowly
Go away only if you have to
Before you go
Hold me as long as you can

I can't see through my window
I'm covered in 99 feet of snow
I have got love on my mind
And sand between my toes

I go to bed praying
You will be staying with me for a while
You will kiss me sweet and strong
Every day of my life
