Jack and Jill

my eggnog buddy, Janelle, just shared this song with me... and I kinda fell in love with it so I thought I'd post the words. (and the link to the video which is totally cute.)

She wore that dress like it was a Saturday
Pretty as a summer rose, picked in the morning
He held her hand like it was a mystery
One he couldn't quite believe was walking with him.

They were high up on a hill
With something to say and daylight to kill
Time slipped away the way that it will

Around and around, dancing 'round the question posed
Pick and coin and watch it roll
Down into the wishing well.
Two steps unset, there goes another day
Another chance to give away
Secrets they kept to themselves

They were high up on a hill
With something to say and daylight to kill
Time slipped away the way that it will
Darkness falls without a sound
They come tumbling down
Tumbling after
Tumbling after

She wore that dress like it was a Saturday
Pretty as a summer rose, picked in the morning
He held her hand like it was a mystery
One he couldn't quite believe was walking with him.

They were high up on a hill
Something to say and daylight to kill
Time slipped away the way that it will...
