  • Lyrics
  • You take your coat off and throw it on the floor
    Night delivers you to my arms once more
    You feel so familiar as you get into bed
    Cigarette smoke halo around you head
    You lean over and kiss me so sweet
    Nobody wake me if this is a dream

    I'm gonna build myself a summer home
    Build myself a summer home in your arms

    I kiss you with the languid adoration of slumber
    Landin' random as lotto numbers
    One on each eye
    And, oops, one on your nose
    And ten for each of your cute little toes
    You lean over and kiss me so sweet
    Nobody wake me if this is a dream

    I'm gonna build myself a summer home
    Build myself a summer home in your arms

    Some people build with wood and brick
    Some people build with stone and stick
    I'm gonna build mine kiss by kiss

    I'm gonna build myself a summer home
    Build myself a summer home in your arms

    I'm a bit of a mess and I'm gone too much
    But when I'm away it's you I long to touch
    And certain things remind me it's such a special treat
    As these little things that bring you to me
    Like when you lean over and kiss me so sweet
    Nobody wake me if this is a dream

    I'm gonna build myself a summer home
    Build myself a summer home in your arms

    Built with all your charmsWriter/s: JEWEL KILCHER
