Lyrics

each day my heart grows fonder
one day i'll be your small wonder
each day my heart grows fonder
one day i'll be your small wonder

i am the moss
that grows on stones
and i am the rocks
that pave your roads
and when you inhale
i fill your lungs
and when you exhale
don't let me out into the world

each day my heart grows fonder
one day i'll be your small wonder
each day my heart grows fonder
one day i'll be your small wonder

and i saw her mouth
protecting her pearl
putting a scar
on the symmetrical
and i used to dream
of such great things
but the moths look like leaves
until they open their wings

each day my heart grows fonder
one day i'll be your small wonder
each day my heart grows fonder
one day i'll be your small wonder

come on henry i'm not-

come on henry i'm not wendy
i am human only in form
and i'll tread lightly
on your light beams
hide them inside to keep me warm

I was the worst of us
my arms let loose the one i loved
and left me standing there
my knuckles raw
my ankles bare
but lady epiphany
whispered a sweetness unto me
what i had always known
"you'll have to do this on your own"

some days my arms can't hold her
but one day she'll be my small wonder
some days my arms can't hold her
but one day she'll be my small wonder
