lyrics

Your story unfolds like a paper
with your smile taking center of page
and although the crowd sighs at those deep woven eyes
your words are all lost in the rain

I don't need you for reason, don't tug at the cotton
so tangled between you and I
we're the boat in the storm, the fire that gives warmth
the drum that keeps us alive

don't hide your love in the darkness where footsteps fade into cold
the hay in the stable can shelter us darling its here I wish to grow old

Your father left early this morning
I watch from behind the barn door
as you raised your head from that soft yellow bed
the angels lit up in your eyes

I know it was you who silenced the birds
who drove the beast from the land
you're the tears of the joyful the strength of the mother
still waiting in her white dressing gown

don't hide your love in the darkness where footsteps fade into cold
the hay in the stable can shelter us darling its here I wish to grow old

I know nothing of struggle my life has been blessed like the strength of the flowers in spring
we are nothing unspoken we are no stone unturned we are the breathing that ushers you in

And what of that mother still waiting?
her tears soak her through to her skin
we are the words on the skyline the unfaltering sunshine
the love that we send her from him

don't hide your love in the darkness where footsteps fade into cold
the hay in the stable can shelter us darling its here I wish to grow old

its with you I wish to grow old.
