Robin’s Nest

Robin’s nest outside my window looks so cold
I’m sure you’re somewhere safe and warm
You both went South, and what will happen no one knows
But I’m guessing only one returns

Little darlin’ I know it’s more than a stones throw
But I’ll call you everyday, it’s gonna be OK

CHORUS:
You’ll have a new room, you’ll have a new school
Lots of new friends, it’s gonna be cool
And while you’re away I’ll take care of the tree house
Your mother and I are living apart
But you’ll have a home in both of our hearts
We’ll be out on a limb doin’ our best
Protecting Robin’s nest

All through last summer with our hammers and our hearts
We climbed up and built your hideaway
We put it together so it wouldn’t fall apart
But not everything works out that way

Little darlin’ I know it’s not how the story’s s’pose to go
But we’ll hold on ‘til spring, don’t you worry ‘bout a thing

REPEAT CHORUS

Couple more seasons
You’ll come back to the nest
And we’ll fall into a rhythm
Just like you never left

You’ll have your old room, three months without school
All your old friends, it’s gonna be cool,
When you come back we’ll camp out in the tree house
Your mother and I areq2 living apart
But you’ll have a home in both of our hearts
We’ll be out on a limb doin’ our best
Protecting Robin’s nest

We’re doin’ our best
Protecting Robin’s nest
