In the morning when the world came awake  Before you knew me I knew your name
It was painted across the day as it breaks 
An impression in your window frame

When you saw me out your window  Singing from the garden 
Only the beginning 
I'm only getting started
I don't mind the digging 
Baby, I'll work harder 
I've been washing dishes
 Singing from the bottom 

But one day I'll be running this place 
And one day I could take you away
But I want you to wonder what's my name
 Because I need you to want me the same

When you saw me washing dishes
 Singing from the bottom 
Only the beginning 
I'm only getting started
I don't mind the digging 
Baby, I'll work harder 
I've been in the ashes  Singing from the garden 

 Where everything reaches for the sun
 Still unsure of what we'll become 
But I need you to reach out to me
See in me more than I could see
 Because I'm afraid that

One day is only two words we say
I don't want to let them get in the way
Of all the plans that we should be making right now
 Right now

Who took the time and where did they take it
I want to take it back
I don't want them to break it
All these plans that we should be making right now
 Right now

You see now one day I'll be running this place 
One day I could take you away
But I want you to wonder what's my name
 Because I need you to want me the same

When you saw me out your window  Singing from the garden 
Only the beginning 
I'm only getting started
I don't mind the digging 
Baby, I'll work harder 
I've been washing dishes
 Singing from the bottom 

One day is only two words we say
I don't want to let them get in the way
Of all these plans that we should be making right now
 Right now

Who took the time and where did they take it
I want to take it back
I don't want them to break it
All these plans that we should be making right now
