lyrics

Guitars, guns and airboats
Sunshine in the sky
Moonlight in a Mason jar
And care goes by and by
Everything is motion
(but) there’s a stillness in the wind
will I ever have the chance to live like this again?

Give me time
Oh sweet angel of St. Martinville
Give me time
Time to sit and breathe
Give me time
And watch the clouds roll slowly
Give me time
Through a sea of Cyprus trees

Gators in the grass
Snakes are hanging from the trees
There’s a slowness that’s surrounding
Almost everything I see
Just the thought of crawfish
And I start throwing lines
I hope I soak it all in to savor in my mind

Give me time
Oh sweet angel of St. Martinville
Give me time
Time to sit and breathe
Give me time
And watch the clouds roll slowly
Give me time
Through a sea of Cyprus trees

Time goes by indifferently
(yah) it’ll pass you by
In a blink you’re on the brink
So best enjoy the ride
You can wander over water
You can hover in the air
Just take the time to witness
All the beauty everywhere

Give me time
Oh sweet angel of St. Martinville
Give me time
Time to sit and breathe
Give me time
And watch the clouds roll slowly
Give me time
Through a sea of Cyprus trees
Standing sentry
At the edge of the bay
