Lyrics:
Milestones ©1997 Rich & Flo Newman (BMI)

Stepping Stones, Milestones in my life
Certain things grow precious
Your arm flung across me at night
Line dried sheet-smell freshness

(Chorus)
Funny how the little details
We hold the closest.

Owl howl, cricket call, Montrealer sings
Sound seeps through sleep-fog-thickness
Stare soon from quilt cocoon my mother made
Wondering at all those stitches

Funny ...
(Bridge)
t's the ordinary stuff and the daily routines
That surprise us and come to mean the most
We'll be pigging out on mooshu, endless "crazy eights" games
I know we'll make some cool and loony ghosts

Phone notes, envelopes, your written recipes
All kept to keep you near to me
How rhythmic your penmanship's even slant
Each "n" is formed so clearly

Funny ...

Plastic pitcher and the mixer that she used
To make that powdered milk with the yucky taste
We drank it just to please her 'cause she told us to
Though it's exactly the kind us kids used to hate

Funny ...
It's the ordinary stuff ...

Stepping stones, milestones in my life - certain things grow precious
