lyrics

She thinks I’ve died…
that wasn’t supposed to happen till the later years
She may be right, I have been slowly shifting gears… shifting down

She’s out there now,
trying to pick her life up, and I’m here all by myself
What have I done with the security and wealth… what have I found?

I’ve found that I don’t have the strength to play the game
But I played until the first chance came to quit
I don’t think she’s leaving me, and I’m not leaving her
But gradually the pieces ceased to fit

I’ve settled to a feckless life of 9 to 5 and sleep at night,
but I clung to her support those times when push had come to shove
Now I think we put our love to sleep,
from secrets that we chose to keep,
I always thought it was enough that she was
And she is…
Covered with love… covered with love… covered with love
Covered with love… covered with love… covered with love

She lives alone…
But only in her mind, she barely knows I’m there
And all the noise I make is spirits pushing air… indolent sound

But it’s my fault,
I’ll probably lose her now, despite the way I feel
Sometimes love is like a spoke within a wheel… it goes around

I’ve found that I don’t have the strength to play the game
But I played until the first chance came to quit
I don’t think she’s leaving me, and I’m not leaving her
But gradually the pieces ceased to fit

I’ve settled to a feckless life of 9 to 5 and sleep at night,
but I clung to her support those times when push had come to shove
Now I think we put our love to sleep,
from secrets that we chose to keep,
I always thought it was enough that she was
And she is…
Covered with love… covered with love… covered with love
Covered with love… covered with love… covered with love

about

Schweitzer Los Angeles, California

My brother started writing songs and that was the spark that started me on my own songwriting course that would last the rest of my life. I chose to use my surname, "Schweitzer," for practical reasons, realizing long ago that pronouncing "Richard Schweitzer" was difficult. "Schweitzer Projects" under the "tindog music & stuff" umbrella is producing songs in the Pop / Pop rock or folk categories ... more
