"Honey" lyrics

Honey

See the tree how big it's grown
But friend it hasn't been too long
It wasn't big
I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it
Was just a twig
Then first snow came
And she ran out to brush the snow away
So it wouldn't die
Came running in all excited
Slipped and almost hurt herself
And I laughed till I cried

She was always young at heart
Kind of dumb and kind of smart
I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all Christmas night
Two years ago
And it would sure embarrass her
When I came in from working late
Cause I would know
That she'd been sitting there and crying
Over some sad and silly late late show

And honey I miss you
And I'm being good
And I'd love to be with you
If only I could

She wrecked the car and she was sad
And so afraid that I'd be mad
But what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be
Guess you could say she saw through me
And hugged my neck
I came home unexpectedly
And caught her crying needlessly
In the middle of the day
And it was in the early spring
When flowers bloom and robins sing
She went away

And honey I miss you
And I'm being good
And I'd love to be with you
If only I could

One day when I wasn't home
When she was there and all alone
The angels came
Now all I have is memories
Of honey and I wake up nights
And call her name
Yes now my life's an empty stage
Where honey lived and honey played
And love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead
And cries down on the flower bed
That honey loved

And see the tree how big it's grown
But friend it hasn't been too long
It wasn't big
I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it
Was just a twig
