Album: Big Dreams & High Hopes (2009)
  • Like the fish in the lake
    And the cane pole you make
    And the feeling when one's on the line

    Like the smile of a friend
    Glad to see you again
    That erases the passing of time

    Like the eagle that flies
    The sun in the sky
    Or the grace God has given to me

    It's free things I wouldn't trade for anything

    Like the night we were standing
    With your hand in my hand
    Just staring up at the stars

    Dancing to something
    But it wasn't nothing
    But the beating of two lucky hearts

    The sound of a train
    Hard pouring rain
    And the words that you whispered to me

    Oh free things I wouldn't trade for anything
    Are everything
    Free things I wouldn't trade for anything
    Are everything to me

    Like that penny on the ground
    Or the fortune I found
    When you wrapped your arms around me

    Free things I wouldn't trade for anything
    Are everything
    Free things I wouldn't trade for anything
    They're everything
    Free things I wouldn't trade for anything
    Are everything to me
