Track Name: Body in Motion
Driving around
Tossing gunpowder snaps out the window
You laugh at the looks of surprise
You’re just as sweet as people think
But you’ve got a wicked streak
A mile wide

Your love lies in bed
When you lace up your shoes in the morning
Your children asleep in their beds
You’ve always needed to feel yourself moving
The wind through your hair
As you start to stretch your legs

And you run like the wind
You’re a cross country star
All your life you’ve been a traveler
Body in motion
Body at rest
You can cross the wide ocean
But you know who loves you the best

Was it in Thailand
When it became clear
The right length of time to spend
Was all the years
Still on that island
Adventure together
World without end
It continues forever

Up with the sun
When an early bird marries a night owl
You get all the hours in the day
All the days of our lives
All the time in the world
Every bird in the sky
Every star in the milky way

And you run like the wind
You’re a cross country star
All your life you’ve been a traveler
Body in motion, body at rest
You can cross the wide ocean
But you know who loves you
The best
Track Name: Judy Day to Day
You hiked to Machu Picchu
On the Inca trail
You climbed Kilimanjaro
Not afraid to fail

Always up for adventure
The gamest of the game
But the greatest adventure
Is this day to day day to day
day to day day to day
day to day day to day
day to day day to day

Judy what might seem so mundane
About this life together
You take each moment and you make
It into something special
It’s hard to find the words to say
How much it means to measure
The passing days with you
So promise that they’ll last forever

You were a middle sister
In the second smallest state
Studied law and found your mister
Was it luck or fate
Now you’re working as a mother
Love’s the only pay
Your sweet son and his baby brother
Take up your day to day day to day
Day to day day to day
Day to day day to day
Day to day day to day

Judy what might seem so mundane
About this life together
You take each moment and you make
It into something special
It’s hard to find the words to say
How much it means to measure
The passing days with you
So promise that they’ll last forever

Yours are the stillest waters
And the deepest
You find what really matters
And you keep it
What on earth could be better
Than to see each other’s face
In calm or stormy weather
Every day to day day to day
Day to day day to day
Day to day day to day
Day to day day to day

Judy what might seem so mundane
About this life together
You take each moment and you make
It into something special
It’s hard to find the words to say
How much it means to measure
The passing days with you
So promise that they’ll last forever

Day to day day to day
Day to day day to day
Day to day day to day
Day to day day to day
