our great estate

© words and music: garnett betts

Well it would have been so easy
To live a life of ease
Be the man in the window
Staring over the trees
And would I be shapeless
In my easy chair
The prophet in my glass
And friends to spare
Oh, friends to spare

And if it hasn’t been so easy
Sure it’s been grand
Always so clear
Where I had to make a stand
And if time is really money
It’s expensive to be poor
But not a day I signed away
That’s for sure
Oh that’s for sure!

Chorus

Come dance
With me in the park
It’s always been our great estate

Come dance
With me in the park
It’s always been our great estate

Bridge

Now here I stand before you
My library intact
My conscience is my mansion
And here I’m looking back
At the glory and defeat
You were gentle and so kind
And the greatest wisdom I have seen
Has been yours not mine

Chorus

Come dance
With me in the park
It’s always been our great estate

Come dance
With me in the park
It’s always been our great estate

Well it would have been so easy
To live a life of ease
Instead of dancing in the falling leaves
Underneath the trees

Humbled and I’m grateful
To have come so far
Holding on to the universe
Dancing in my arms

Chorus

Come dance
With me in the park
It’s always been our great estate

Come dance
With me in the park
Let it always be
Let it always be our great estate
