Lyrics

#VERSE
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

#CHORUS
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

#VERSE
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

#VERSE
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

#CHORUS
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

#INSTRUMENTAL

#VERSE
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

#VERSE
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

#CHORUS
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
