lyrics

We’ve got lakes, we’ve got rivers, we’ve got tributaries
And depths no diver can reach
But I know you feel our love’s in the shallows
Stranded and dry on the beach

The moon is wide, rich and resplendent
And full as the breadth of our love
Yet time and again, you’ve taken to tell me
That what we’ve got’s just not enough

Love is a cycle, winding through seasons
Each love must pass through them all
Though our summers are bright and springs are abundant
Baby, we’ve entered our fall

There’s a reason we act like we do
There’s a purpose to find
There’s a river that joins me to you
And everything flows down in time

Most of the time we bend in the wind
But something’s gotta give in the end
But for every branch that falls to the ground
A new one will grow back again
