lyrics

I'm spending the day, knitting you a sweater
It's the closest I get to you, aside from a letter
'Cause I don't get to see you for six months or more
But that's the way life is we both know the score

I missed your birthday, but I love you all year
So please don't think just 'cause my body is broken in two
That I don't care
'Cause I'm knitting for you

I bought some new wool, it's mostly Angora
It's reminding me of the last time I saw ya
You were chasing your dreams, flying off to a meeting
To fulfill all those things in your life you were needing

I want you to be happy
To live your life
So please don't think just 'cause my body is broken in two
That I don't care
'Cause I'm knitting for you

And I dream of the day we'll go camping again
And we'll walk on the rocks of the river, fall in
And we'll sunbathe and talk about life
It might be some time til this dream can come true
Meantime I'll be thinking of you

I've got wooden buttons, I'm sewing them on
I imagine you in it I hope you'll be warm
'Cause it's raining where you are, a white winter scene
But I think this will suit you this light shade of green

Come home for Christmas see how the kids have grown
But please don't think just 'cause my body is broken in two
That I don't care
'Cause I'm knitting for you
