Even If the Grass Was Greener, I'm Staying on This Side with You.

Alabama Arkansas I do Love my Ma and Pa
But not as much as I do Love you
Holy Moly Me oh My you're the apple of my eye
Girl Boy ain't never loved one like you
Man o Man your my best friend I scream it to the nothingness

Hot and Heavy pumpkin pie
Chocolate candy Jesus Christ
Ain't nothin please me more than you

Home, Let me come Home
Home is Whenever Im with you
Home, yes I am Home
Home is wherever I'm with you

Lalalala Take me Home
Mama I'm Coming Home

I follow you into the park, thru the jungle thru the dark
Girl Boy aint never loved one like you
Moats and boats and Waterfalls, Alleyways and payphone calls

Laugh until we think we'll die, barefoot on a summer night
never could be sweeter than with you

like its only you and me jade/ebes your somethin to see

Lalalala take me home

well, while you were sitting in the back seat smokin a cigarrette you thought was gona be your last, I was fallin deep, deep in love with you, and I never told you till just now!

Home, let me come home, home is wherever I'm with you
Home, yes I am Home home is whenever I'm with you!

Alabama Arkansas I do love my Ma and Pa
Yes Home, yes ward! home is whenever I'm with you!
Home is whenever I'm with you

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros - "Home"

To my dear and loving husband, father to our son:
     Thank you for introducing me to this band for I could not have said it better myself. As soon as we found out that our little Finn baby was coming you became an incredible father before he was even here. Well, after you became an amazing husband, quickly naturally. You held our hand though my gallbladder fun and my awesome migraines, then as Finn came bouncing into the world. Those first several days when I could barely raise my head, you took him to the doc twice! Just when we thought that was as rough fun as it would get, I found us some snazzy new digs in a hospital for a few months. (Hey, it was waterfront property.) It was so exciting to see you two stroll in every morning, with the whole nursery in-tow, and those days that Finn got to go home for a break and you resumed night duty with me on the 7th floor of the TSU in that window seat those plush sleeping quarters. (Guess we finally got that long honeymoon after all.)Those days spent in the Levee Run apartments following discharge are some of my fondest memories of me, you, and Finn together. I am so proud that I have my scar to look at everyday and remember, not only that it saved my life, but that it was such a miraculous time that we got to share together as a family. You have done so much since then that I hate myself for not keep a journal of all you are every day. I guess if times ever get rough, we can just look back through THESE and realize that if we made it thought all of those adventures in the first nine months of marriage we, together, can do anything.

Happy 1st Father's Day.
I love you now and forever...
