mr. harris lyrics – aimee mann

so he’s retired
lives with his sister in a furnished flat
he’s got this suit that
he’ll never wear outside without a hat
his hair is white but he looks half his age
he looks like jimmy stewart in his younger days

and honestly
i might be stupid to think
love is love, but i do
and you’ve waited so long
and i’ve waited long enough for you

my mother’s calling
from where she’s living up in troy, vermont
she tries to tell me
a father figure must be what i want
i’ve always thought age made no difference
am i the only one to whom that’s making sense?

and honestly
i might be stupid to think
love is love, but i do
and you’ve waited so long
and i’ve waited long enough for you

the day i met him he was raking leaves
in his tiny yard

of course i know that
we’ve only got ten years or twenty left
but to be honest
i’m happy with whatever time we get
depending on whichever book you read
sometimes it takes a lifetime to get what you need

and honestly
i might be stupid to think
love is love, but i do
and you’ve waited so long
and i’ve waited long enough for you
