The warmth of your love was
The first thing I knew
And your careful touch
Showing me what to do
In this time and place
In a home that's fair and just

When you smile
The flowers all grow
I feel your arms around me
Wherever I go
Your love washes clean what
This world turns to dust

As the leaves scatter through
Showing us the winds that blow
Just one thing stays true
This is what I know

With the brown down below
And the blue up above
I learn so well when you
Teach me with love
Keep it calm, take it slow
In this world of stress and rush

We played away the day
With reason to rejoice
And lullaby to sleep with
The sound of your voice
Your love washes clean what
This world turns to dust

Your love washes clean what
This world turns to dust
