The door clicks on its hinges
The table’s laid for two
The scent of roses reaches me
I’m filled up unexpectedly
With joy at seeing you
The bustle of my daytime
Is stilled within your hands
The drive that has evaded me
The movement forward I can’t see
With you, I understand
You can light the room up
When we are with my crowd
All my friends say you pass the test
My mother really likes you best
I’m by your side and proud
A garden full of laughter
A glass that’s full of wine
An ice cream under Salcombe sun
The lessons learned in How To Pun:
Life’s sweeter now you’re mine
So let’s plan more adventures
Let’s be living out our dream
I know I’m blessed by who you are
That when you’re close, we will go far
For you and I are Team
The air is fresh, the ground is wet
The sun’s not reached its peak just yet
My hand’s in yours, with yours in mine
And ‘long this path, we take our time
In Lemington, with stars still out,
A lucky meeting came about
And with the dawn of the next day
We took our first steps on our way
‘Though one heart beats for Rams’ football
The other heeds X Factor’s call
Together, ‘cross the globe we roam
Together in our Brockley home
The mates who make our spirits soar
The families whom we adore
From uni days now through the years
We'll always hold each other dear
With every minute as we go,
If hills are steep or cold winds blow,
Laughter sounds, your smile shines through
And I’m not lost ‘cause I’m with you
West Mill, this magic afternoon,
With gorgeous flowers, cheesy tunes,
Sees those we treasure in one place
As we make vows to keep our pace
Hand in hand and steps aligned
Keeping silly, keeping kind;
To growth and trusting ever true,
To joy, to fun, to love, to you.
Yours and mine
Oh, couldn’t you change the tone?
Well, my alarm didn’t bother anyone
When I was here alone.
I’m up to groom my Oz, my joy,
My other right hand man.
Don’t try to make me jealous, dear:
You know I’ve got Dylan.
A cup that’s freshly brewed.
Now off I go. - Don’t work too hard!
I’ll call you around noon.
Chores and loud chatter, statements, bills,
Errands, waiting. Dreams.
Land and wind and space to breathe.
Wood doors. Low-hanging beams.
Is that you, dear?
It is me, dear.
I’m so glad that you’ve phoned.
It’s been a hard day and I’m worn out,
I’d quite like to come home.
‘Cause home is paint and home’s homemade,
Good food, beer and wine,
Home is a table with family and friends,
Home is you and I.
No, yours, dear!
I washed up just last night!
I’m watching TV! I’m far too tired!
You’re wrong, you’re wrong, I’m right!
The dogs need walking, getting dark.
Boots and coats pulled on.
Is the door locked? - Yes, I just checked.
Shall we be getting along?
Oh, thank you, dear.
Well, I wouldn’t let you trip.
The path can be rough, and hills so steep,
But I’ve your hand to grip.
I’m peaceful now. I’m happy too,
Here, underneath the stars.
The future’s mine, the future’s yours;
No, my love, it’s ours.
If we don’t spend much time dwelling
On the things that we have done
The flip-flopped, sea-splashed memories
We made under the sun
If we don’t replay repeatedly
Adventures we’ve been on
Traversing the two continents
To which we two belong
It’s ‘cause we’ve got things to do
Plans and dreams of future fun:
There are dancefloors undiscovered
There are races to be run
Puppies playing in a garden
Excited footsteps on a stair
Whoever snaps the better photo
It’s a picture we will share
We’ve cultivated globally
The finest sorts of friends
And have two amazing families
On whom we’ll endlessly depend
So if treading streets, barefoot on sand –
Wherever we may roam,
We’ll go there holding hands and hearts:
Together, we’ve found home.
