lyrics

We are lazy in the living room
while the snow keeps coming down outside
it is cold in our house when you tell me
let’s take it one thing at a time
you say “I try to take care of you in the morning before me
‘cause I know you have a mind to worry”
and now I’m worried I don’t give enough back
that little love notes don’t pick up enough slack

Chorus:
but you say baby, small is beautiful
we all do what we can
and if all you do is stay with me
I’ll be a happy man

We don’t get a lot of quiet days like these
I forget to notice how it feels
everything is soft and white and drowned in silence
it’s like you and me are all that’s really here
I wrap my hands around warm cups of tea
your chin’s in your hand and you are thinking
I try to keep my guitar understated so you can finish what you’re doing

Chorus:
And baby, small is beautiful
we all do what we can
and if all you do is stay with me
you’ll be my only man
well ok, so small is beautiful
let’s shrink our whole lives down
we won’t need a way to tell the time
it’ll always be right now

Small is beautiful

Lara Ruggles Boulder, Colorado

After 3 1/2 years of sweat, pain, tears, love and actual blood, Lara Ruggles released Cynics & Saints on Immersive Records in October 2015.
FEMMusic: “…the most honest album I’ve heard since James Taylor or Joan Baez. Every single song exposes and elevates her.”
PopMatters: “…the 29-year-old combines Americana and lavish 1970s Laurel Canyon singer-songwriter fare with the confidence of a master."
