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 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
Kinda dumb and kinda 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 sittin' there
And cryin' 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
