  • Lyrics: You are a good woman, and I am a good man. I know, it may not seem so at times, but I am. And, I don't see the sun rise, and I don't see it set. When I worked in the mornings, I'd be in the kitchen before Sol's first steps. And, now working nights, I'm in the kitchen when Sol turns out the lights. Sweetheart, if I hadn't found the love of song, then maybe the abundance of money or time would find us high atop a mountain in a leisurely state, just hiking and fishing away the days. In a leisurely state. And, by the picture window, I'd lean into your ear and say, "I know what could have been, what could have been, what could have been. And, I know the path I chose is not the only path for walking. So, here I am, just as I am, just as I am and here you are, just as you are. You're beautiful. You're beautiful." But, it's been a long time, and I just don't feel the way I used to about life. Days wore me down. My loves have jaded me. I'm keeping it all outside. My heart can't take it, but I try. Oh, do I try. And, as my father said, "Son, I wish you would have picked an easier life. These failures are gonna get to you, but they're not your fault. Yeah, that's right. Well, if you pick something that knocks you down, you better stand and fight." I know what could have been, what could have been, what could have been. And, I know the path I chose is not the only path for walking. So, here I am, just as I am, just as I am and here you are, just as you are. And, I know what could have been, what could have been, what could have been. And, I know the path I chose is not the only path for walking. So, here I am, just as I am, just as I am and here you are, just as you are. You're beautiful.
