lyrics

On the day of our union
You parted the sea
But my yoke was heavy
And my back was weak
And the waves rose above me
Covered south, east, west and north
Until my path was a river
And the river set the course

As you lie beside me
My head feels slow
And my poor heart beats
Like a bass drum
I'll keep you with me
Like a smooth stone
When my path is a river
And the river sets the course

Darling it's the same thing every time
I keep running to what holds me down
It's hard
It's getting harder

As the light settled on you
You looked beautiful as a ghost
And your words started humming
Like transistor radio
One day my weakness
Will be made strong
For now my path is a river
And the river sets the course

Darling it's the same thing every time
I keep running to what keeps me low
I want to build you into a home
While I'm acting like a wrecking ball
But our love is like a wedding ring
It keeps running on and on and on

Even if it's hard
It’s getting harder
