A Place in the Shade

Day after day working in the sun

Staring at the grove and the great beyond

Dreaming of that place I'll come to know

A shady refuge where rest is my home

Watching others as they carry on

Clinging to their riches rejoicing in the sun

Playing power games all day long

But all their money they can't save

And that place in my heart they have no claim

For all the lost gold from the days of old

Could shelter you from the weight of the load

I'm waiting for my little shady grove

Sweating everyday trying to earn a way

So I can find my place in the shade

To get out of the sun and rest away

A fools thought keeps me singing along

And the thrills of life are reflected upon

The dream that remains woven into my heart

Is enough for anyone to start

Clinging to the refuge of soul

Reveries and nightingales all that remain

A shady grove of my own

A place forever known

Resting in the shade
