From the album A Day at a Time

Lyrics

She hit me like a soft rain quiet and free
Before I knew it yeah she was coming down on me
She had that cute sassy soul and a smile so sweet
But it ain't no fairy tale or some destiny
Just people talking in a coffee shop and sipping on tea
Don't know where we were going, but she was looking at me

So I said "Hey girl, I like your smile
But we don't gotta figure out a thing tonight
Ain't no rush we can just take it a day at a time
The weather's good, come on let's ride
Down to the beach neath the Malibu sky
Ain't no rush, we can just take it a day at a time"

We went from icy parking lots to the hot sheets
And she was just like that puzzle piece we found in the seats
We fit together baby, like the sea and the sand
Weekends we would reach for the stars
But Monday evenings were ours
Staying up and talking 'bout life and each of our scars
It was like part time loving, but she needed a full time man

So I said "Hey girl, I'll be your guy
But we don't gotta pick you out a ring tonight
Ain't no rush, we can just take it a day at a time
No I ain't here to just have a good time
But look at how the last few months flew by
Ain't no rush, we can just take it a day at a time"

A day at a time... yeah... oh

Ain't it funny how some days they just seem like a table setter?
Wake up from a good dream; who cares? Cuz life's better
She gave me that and I wanna love her forever
So I plan a speech, make it sound like a love letter
And I drive in the fast lane
Cuz this day is that day
No worries, but I'm hurrying and my hearts at a fast pace
See that face
Same smile like the first date
Don't even kneel, just stood frozen and hoping that the words came

And said "Hey girl, I like your smile
Let's go pick you out a ring tonight
I can't wait to love you every day of my life
It'd be so good to call you my wife
And raise some babies as the years pass by
Ain't no rush, we can just take it a day at a time"

A day at a time, yeah... oh

I said "Hey girl, we had a great life
Ain't it so crazy how the years pass by
I'm so glad that we took it a day at a time
