A love song for people who've been together for more than just a little while.


This is Just Alright

You woke up one morning, rolled over to say
The exuberance of youth no longer held sway
As I stared at the truth in the mirror that day
At the gray hairs and laugh lines etched there to stay

I thought: We still like to hold hands when we walk through the park
And I still love the feel of your skin in the dark
We can still share a beer on a warm summer night
If this is a good as it gets this is just all right

We don’t live in the past or in our memories
But the kids love to laugh at our old stories
And we probably won’t learn all of life’s mysteries
But we could teach a few things to the birds and the bees

And I know sometimes that you feel kind of sad
I drive you nuts, and you drive me mad
We both realize our dreams can’t all come true
But you still love me babe and I - I still love you


from Rescued You, released October 20, 2017
Rory Cummings with Jim Bird (bass), Wayne Allison (drums) and the delightful Mary Stewart (harmony)
