Original Lyrics:

You take your coat off and throw it on the floor 
Night delivers you to my arms once more 
You feel so familiar as you get into bed 
Cigarette smoke halo around you head

You lean over and kiss me so sweet. oh oh-oh, oh... 
I could lay with you like this for hours... 
Hours and hours 
Building a summer home in your arms

I kiss you with the languid admiration of slumber 
Landin' random as lotto numbers 
One for each eye 
And, oops, one on your nose 
And ten for each of your cute little toes

You lean over and kiss me so sweet. oh oh-oh, oh... 
I could lay with you like this for hours... 
Hours and hours... 
Building a summer home in your arms

Am I crazy, do I talk too much? 
Sometimes I think your silence is a crutch 
Am I mad, are you married? 
Ah man, this love stuff can sure be scary 
But so sweet... So sweet, here in your arms 

I'm a bit of a mess and I'm gone too much 
But when I'm away it's you I long to touch 
And certain things remind me it's such a special treat 
As these little things that bring you to me

You lean over and kiss me so sweet. oh oh-oh, oh... 
I could lay with you like this for hours... 
Hours and hours... 
Building a summer home in your arms

I'm building a summer home in your arms 
I'm building a summer home in your arms 
I'm building a summer home in your arms 
Built with all your charms

Sweet and Wild Lyrics:

You take your coat off and throw it on the floor
Night delivers you to my arms once more
You feel so familiar as you get into bed
Cigarette smoke halo around you head

You lean over and kiss me so sweet
Nobody wake me if this is a dream
I’m gonna build myself a summer home
Build myself a summer home in your arms

I kiss you with the languid admiration of slumber
Landin' random as lotto numbers
One for each eye
And, oops, one on your nose
And ten for each of your cute little toes

You lean over and kiss me so sweet
Nobody wake me if this is a dream
I’m gonna build myself a summer home
Build myself a summer home in your arms

Some people build with stone and brick
Some people build with wood and stick
But I’m gonna build mine kiss by kiss
I’m gonna build myself a summer home
Build myself a summer home in your arms

I'm a bit of a mess and I'm gone too much
But when I'm away it's you I long to touch
And certain things remind me it's such a special treat
As these little things that bring you to me

You lean over and kiss me so sweet
Nobody wake me if this is a dream
I’m gonna build myself a summer home
Build myself a summer home in your arms
Build myself a summer home in your arms
Built with all your charms

Flower of Life
“This is an older song and falls in my Pieces Of You category. It's my little brand of folksy, country hard-to-define genre. It has whimsical lyrics, and has a shuffle similar to "You Were Meant For Me." For those hardcores who know this song from bootlegs - it is different. I changed it from waltz time to 4/4, I created a chorus hook by changing chords, and I wrote a sweet bridge (I borrowed some lyric theme from the song I wrote with Joe Firstman, for those keeping track of how I cannibalize my own material) I added steel drum to this song, as it has a breezy quality that works perfectly with an island drum.”
