Maggie Rogers – A Love Letter

Maggie Rogers – A Love Letter

Dear old tree in my front yard
thank you for your shade
your leaves are speckled with streaming rays of sun
and I love the rustling noise they make

The swing on your branch
is my favorite spot
And I’m sorry for the steps we nailed
into your bark

I’ll love you forever
yes, I’ll love you still
I’ll love you more than any man
Oh, I promise that I will.

Dear old chickens that wander through my yard
Thank you for the eggs that you have laid
Oh their blue/green shells are speckled with dirt
but I love the cracking sound they make

While chasing you is something
I admit I’ve done a lot
I could never steam or fry you
or put you in a pot

Yes, I’ll love you forever
Yes, I’ll love you still
Oh, I’ll love you more than any man
Oh, I promise that I will.

Dear old house that I grew up in
I miss you when I’m gone
The dog hair on my sofa
and the light through my window at dawn

While I know at times it seems that I am
far away
I’ll be home for thanksgiving
and on christmas day

Yes, I’ll love you forever
Yes, I’ll love you still
Oh, I’ll love you more than any man
Oh, forever I will.
