My Reason Why

 

Music and words by Whitney Smith, 2000, SOCAN

 

I knew you then under a desert sky

I knew you when there was no why

Why a man stops to gaze

Why a path turns into a maze.

 

I knew you then as sweet and shy

I knew you when there was no why

Why a face haunts a dream

Why an ocean wants a stream.

 

Hair the color of wheat

Just the type who might kiss and tell

Pretty smiles make a man complete

So what harm is done when a lovjer weaves a spell

 

That careless moon tells me I must

Not let these fields get trod to dust.

Plant me a wish in the sky

I've already got a star, (s)he's my reason why.
