A Thousand Hellos (single)

by Aaron Gibson



A Thousand Hellos is another song written for a worthy bride.


a smile’s worth a thousand hellos
a kiss might be more
a touch, though it be on the hand, is felt in my toes

ready or not i’ll always come and find you
exquisite food for my hungry soul
and though I always try to play the gentleman
ascendancy of my cool is beyond control

if we could stay together until heaven
then you know I will
you know I will

my one point of contention
with God, death and the universe
it’s said in the end that it won’t be nothing like this
given or taken, no dinners to rehearse

but I said I’d always come to find you
I’d jump the great chasm and fall to my grave
but I guess to walk in streets of pay dirt
check myself again and learn how to behave

but if we could stay together until heaven
if we could stay together until heaven
then you know I will
you know I will

days once beside me
now assail, now brandish their smile
but I welcome footprints the crows left behind
time of my life all the while

your kiss might be more
