Lyrics

 

She said her name was Carly Rose
Just moved here from Pasadena
there was an earthquake in my mind
she smiled and I said “Nice to meet ya”

She had a notebook in her pocket
was a poet from the East Coast
who didn’t want to share her verses
but she raised a glass and gave a toast:

“Here’s to Life, Love, and Laughter,
running barefoot through the night.
Here’s to music until sunrise
Until your heart weeps with delight.”

I said that midnight was my birthday,
She was a Virgo, I was a Taurus
and on the jukebox a song was spinning,
coming round to another chorus

Here’s to Life, Love, and Laughter,
running barefoot through the night.
Here’s to music until sunrise
Until your heart weeps with delight.

Her eyes they struck me just like lightning
There was a stone inside my throat
And in my head a song was playing
and in my heart these words were wrote:

“Here’s to Life, Love, and Laughter,
running barefoot through the night.
Here’s to music until sunrise
Until your heart weeps with delight.”

Here’s to Life, Love, and Laughter,
running barefoot through the night.
Here’s to music until sunrise
Until your heart weeps with delight.

(From the album "misfit hymns")
