Back to the Basics With You

We’ve been together for a few years now
And have been stuck in the same routine
We work so hard all day and night
We barely have any time to clean

I look into your eyes and remember when
All I wanted was to hold you tight
If you asked me what I want
This is what I’d say tonight

I wanna snuggle on the couch
Or head outside for a long, long walk
Let’s go for a ride in the country
Or sit on the porch swing and talk
We’ve been so caught up with
Our children’s busy lives
We don’t do what lovers do
Don’t you want some “us time,” babe
I wanna get back to the basics with you
I wanna get back to the basics with you

We could go out to Miller’s Pond
Where we spoke of what our hearts desired
Instead of always complaining about our day
And ending each night broke down and tired

I wanna cuddle like we did back then
I wanna kiss you on the nape of your neck
I’m in need of some kind of physical proof
Not a repeating rain check…

I wanna snuggle on the couch
Or head outside for a long, long walk
Let’s go for a ride on a tandem bike
Or sit at a picnic table and talk
We’ve been so caught up with
Our children’s crazy lives
We don’t do what lovers do
Don’t you want some “us time,” baby
I wanna get back to the basics with you

I wanna get back to the basics with you.
