Honey Lyrics

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 the first snow came and she ran out
To brush the snow away so it wouldn't die
Came runnin' in all excited slipped and almost hurt herself
And I laughed till I cried

She was always young at heart
Kinda dumb and kinda smart and I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago

And it would sure embarrass her
When I came in from workin' late 'cause I would know
That she'd been sittin' there and cryin'
Over some sad and silly late, late show

And Honey, I miss you
And I'm bein' 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 cryin' 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 bein' good
And I'd love to be with you
If only I could

One day while I was not at home
While 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

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
And I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it, was just a twig

The angels took away my honey in 2003. Every time I hear this song it reminds me to make the most of every moment, to show my love unreservedly and to take time to smell the roses.

I cry when I hear this song, it is so sad and beautiful. I lost my beautiful dog 6 weeks ago, and she was a honey. RIP my beautiful Snubbull. I will love you forever.

I just lost my dad a couple of weeks ago and this song reminds me of him so much. He used to walk around the house humming this tune.
