Small Things Shining Bright

The title and last track of this album.

It’s not just the coffee in the morning for your sweetie that’s the glue for any relationship,

it’s why you do it in the first place.

So begins another day of opened eyes and windows
traffic wheels and wheels away noise goes where the wind blows
He makes his coffee black as night thinks about her sleeping
their love is small things shining bright sometimes it leaves him weeping

It's not too late at this late stage
for hearts of stone to soften
when the years add to your age
love doesn't happen often
fair enough, then, let it be so.

They only met scant years ago an almost chance encounter
music wine and laughter flowed colours glowed around her
he to her seemed not too far away for old flirtation
she cast it out he took the bait expectant hesitation

Bridge:How do you like your coffee?” she asked as the party whirledBlack as midnight oil and you?” Signal flags unfurled.Light tan, lots of cream and honey” A finger through her hair
and from there to here from then to

Now you take another cup bring it to the table
take care not to fill it up leave room so you're able
to froth the heated honeyed cream pour it in the centre
go into your room of dreams set it down beside her

It's not too late at this late stage for hearts of stone to soften
when the years add to your age love doesn't happen often
fair enough, then, let it be so..

love is small things shining bright open eyes and wonder...
