lyrics

How Do We Know
Eli Conley

Every morning you wake up
You make the toast and brew the tea
You pet the cat and keep her quiet
So she will not wake me

How do we know when it’s time to seal the deal?
How do we know when it’s time to take all the things we feel and make it real? How do we know? Oh...

At night we go out on the roof
And watch the stars as they appear
And I’ll admit I’ve looked for proof
That love can still work out, I’ve had to let go doubt and fear

How do we know when it’s time to seal the deal?
How do we know when it’s time to take all the things we feel and make it real? How do we know? Oh...

Four years ago you drew some diamonds
Geometric, pen and ink, you gave them to me
And then this spring you made a ring, a little silver thing
And we told ourselves it meant nothing, oh no

In truth, I’ve never cared for marriage
But I hoped we’d settle down
I’ll take the roses and the carriage
But not the paperwork, we don’t need no clerk downtown

I think I know that it’s time to seal the deal
I think I know that it’s time to take all the things I feel and kneel
I think I know, Oh...
