A Growing Time Lyrics

by Dan Fogelberg

It's a growing time
It's the springtime of the year
It's a growing time
The sun is moving near
It's yours and mine
The days are ours to share
Within our peaceful garden
And this growing time so fair

Caring quietly
For the garden in our care
It's a joy to see
True love's blossoms growing there
When you walk with me
A single shadow's thrown
Across our peaceful garden
And this growing time we've known

Chorus:
Now the sheep are in the meadow
And the cows are in the corn
And if wishes were like horses we would ride
Like the light unto the shadow
And the blossom to the thorn
We've come to learn we flourish side by side
Side by side
