Mel Green: Songs & Lyrics

I'll Be Here

(by Mel GreenĀ© 2009 Mel Green, Mel Green, MelGreen Publishing, BMI)

Reconnecting with a dear friend 
after many years, led to many trans-Atlantic conversations, 
and a rekindled friendship.
My imagination led me to believe that may friends
have many similar conversations... andif one is visually oriented,
one can imagine a scene such as the one in the song. 

Tell me about your lover babe

Tell me about your friends

I’ll be here at the end of the line

I’ll be here till your heart mends


Tell me about your day at work

Tell me how you feel

It doesn’t matter, how long it takes

I’m listening, so let it unreel.


Chorus: x 2

There’s a robin out on the lawn

Bobbin’ for a worm

I’m just like that robin

I’ll be here when the seasons turn


I imagine you're washing dishes

Looking out your window too

I know why we talk like this

I know what you've been through


I realize why we're connected

In that special time and place

You are my link to that special time

Its you who gives it a face


Chorus:

There’s a robin out on the lawn

Bobbin’ for a worm

I’m just like that robin

I’ll be here when the seasons turn
