Well I don't drink as much as I used to
 Lately it just ain't my style 
And the hard times don't hurt like they ought to
They pass quicker like when I was a child 

[Chorus]
And somehow I've learned how to listen 
For a sound like the sun going down
In the magic the morning is bringing 
There's a song for the life I have found 
It keeps my feet on the ground 

And the midsummer days sit so heavy 
But don't they flow like the breeze through your mind
When nothing appears in a hurry 
To make up for someone's lost time

[Chorus]

And somehow I've learned how to listen 
For a sound like the breeze dying down
In the magic the morning is bringing 
There's a song for the friend I have found 
She keeps my feet on the ground 
She keeps my feet on the ground
