Payo Payo Chin

Album: Out of All This Blue (2017)
  • On a velvet morning in the northern hemisphere
    I wake up, my arm around my dear
    Her eyes are closed, she's dreaming I suspect
    I kiss her lovely head and breathe upon her neck and whisper
    Payo Payo, Payo Payo Chin
    Payo Payo, Payo Payo Chin

    She turns over and kisses my face
    what did I do to deserve this grace?
    her breath is warm as she snuggles in to say
    good morning Darling in her own special way
    Payo Payo, Payo Payo Chin
    Payo Payo, Payo Payo Chin
    Payo Payo, Payo Payo Chin
    Payo Payo Chin

    We make love so tender and so slow
    and fall asleep again, for how long I don't know
    when we reawake the morning is still young
    and that sweet little phrase comes trippin' off our tongues
    Payo Payo, Payo Payo Chin
    Payo Payo, Payo Payo Chin
    Payo Payo, Payo Payo Chin
    Payo Payo Chin

    I love her courage, I love her craft
    I love the funny way she claps her hands and laughs
    I love the feeling of her skin against my skin
    I love these words we say, when day begins
    Payo Payo, Payo Payo Chin
    Payo Payo, Payo Payo Chin
    Payo Payo, Payo Payo Chin
    Payo Payo Chin
