Leave it Plain

about

Historically, the wedding ring was rather connected to the exchange of valuables at the moment of the wedding rather than a symbol of eternal love and devotion. It is a relic of the times when marriage was a contract between families, not individual lovers.

lyrics

I would just like to lay my head in the sun
let the rays run around - let the rays run around
i would just like to hear the birds in the trees
singing to me - singing to me

if your ring doesnt love your hand
just leave it plain - just leave it plain
and if all of your hair is turning grey
just leave it plain - just leave it plain

ohh dear i do fear that the rain here it only moves south
i did not call but i left you a note on the wall
did you read what it said

theres no fog your mind it just doesnt want to see at all
to see at all
theres no rain but the heart is a puddle and your brain has become the drain

i would just like to soak my head in the lake
let the fish swim around - let the fish swim around
i would just like to rest for a while on this hill
let the days dance around - let the days dance around

if your ring doesnt love your hand
just leave it plain - just leave it plain
and if all of your hair is turning grey
just leave it plain - just leave it plain

i would run with you into the mountains
and watch the clouds run away
and id hide my eyes under the blankets of snow
reflecting so bright
i didnt call but i left you a note on the wall
did you read what it said

theres no fog your mind it just doesnt want to see at all
to see at all
theres no rain but the heart is a puddle
and your brain has become the drain
