Lyrics

It seems like the summer
Gets dragged into the winter
And my favorite time of all is the fall
When the leaves are changin’ colors
And you wear your favorite sweeter
And you long for the lovin’ most of all


And you say, “This perfect day is a long, ways away
This perfect day”
Come what may
For today, in my mind will be this perfect day


A long time ago
I was sittin’ with my mother
It was cold
And I think it was gonna snow
It was the year after
My dad passed away
Thanksgiving
And we didn’t have a place to go


So, we ended up at Denny’s
Had the roast turkey
The waitress was smilin’ all the time
She made us feel thankful
That we were together
And that day has been ever on my mind.


And you say, “This perfect day is a long, ways away
This perfect day”
Come what may
For today, in my mind will be this perfect day


Now every Thanksgiving
We gather ‘round the table
Hold hands, while we say grace
There’s an angel for the centerpiece
And a candle burning bright
And a heart-shaped empty plate


There’s laughter from the kitchen
My mom’s making coffee
And the neighbors just brought a pie
Oh, the fire’s warm and invitin’
And I feel your arms around me
Your love, given me the strength to cry.


And you say, “This perfect day is a long, ways away
This perfect day”
Come what may
For today, in my mind will be this perfect day
In my mind will be this perfect day

ABOUT
My mom and I once shared a Thanksgiving dinner at Denny's. At the time, it didn't seem special. Looking back, it was a perfect day.
