Lyrics

 

In terms of all the senses, God’s proudest moment rose

When he fashioned on the face of man...the power of the nose

Just the fragrance of a daphne, tends to make me calm

And when I pass by her perfume...... I can still see my dear mom

 

Oh, I started smokin’ early, it was favored in my clique

And I learned to love it somehow, determined not to quit

But as the years went by I had to get a handle on that thing

And it was such a revelation,

When I finally smelled the Spring

 

Chorus

I smell chlorophyll a’risin’, in my neighbor’s new mown lawn

When I walk t’get my coffee, in the peace before the dawn

I can smell espresso brewing, a block before the store

And in hail the pavement sweetens, like it never did before

 

Bridge

Well I used to smell the car exaust , rotten eggs and dirty clothes

But only smells that made it through the smoke inside my nose

Fish inside the garbage, sewage and a skunk...

Lets just say the only things I smelled were things that stunk....

 

Verse 3 

Now I smell the summer waiting, in the breeze my curtains send

And the cherry blossom special, which I highly recommend

And the earth below the garden, and the flowers by the swing

It was such a revelation

When I finally smelled the Spring

 

Chorus

I smell chlorophyll a’risin’, in my neighbor’s new mown lawn

When I walk t’get my coffee, in the peace before the dawn

And I admit there’s days that I still miss my nicotine

But I found a new addiction

When I finally smelled the Spring

 

Oh it’s just like second nature...

Since I finally smelled the Spring
