SWEET LIFE
Words and Music by James Keith Norman

VERSE #1:
A young couple stands in a field
knee-deep in grass.
Three idle acres they just bought
the hour before last.
“Close your eyes,” he says.
“Tell me again what you see.”

VERSE #2:
She says,
"I see the little house we’ll build
Two horses that’ll graze.
A white rose garden. A picket fence.
The boy and girl we’ll raise.
I see so much,
And I see it all so clear.

CHORUS:
"I see a lifetime of wonderful.
All through the years, dreams coming true.
I see a sweet, sweet life here with you."

VERSE #3:
She says,
"I see us over there in the woods
choppin’ for a fire.
You on that hill playing fetch with a pup;
me with a songbird choir.
And we lose count
whenever we count the stars.

VERSE #4:
"And I see decorating tall Christmas trees;
birthday cakes, too,
And our families together here
for reunion barbecues.
I see so much,
And I see it all so clear.

CHORUS.

BRIDGE:
"And strollin’ by that river, near that willow tree.
I see you and me
our hair gray,
still in love on that day.
She says…

CHORUS (EXTENDED):
I see a sweet, sweet life
here with you.
Such a sweet, sweet life here with you.
