Tangerines are hanging heavy, glowing marigolden hues
Teasing a half-pale moon
And I feel a pull to the blue-velvet dark and stars.

Pink Magnolia, blushing and coy
Savors the sun while she shines
You’ve got yours and I’ve got mine
Together we glide through the blue-velvet dark and stars

All it takes is a little faith, and a lot of heart

Back and forth we ply these oars
They move in time and get entwined
Green with joy then gray with sorrow
Ripened fruit that falls tomorrow
Filling us with brilliance

Branches are bare with a pulse underneath
Flowering slowly inside
Your hands are warm and my body is wide
To hold all the promise of blue-velvet dark and stars

All it takes is a little faith and a lot of heart
Sweetheart

    General CommentThis is a very peaceful picture of the nature of marriage -- A boat going down a river with two oars, husband and wife, working together. The bare branches, yet with a pulse underneath, symbolize future hope for life and happiness.

    General CommentI think this song is a really romantic view of two lovers trying for a baby.

    With lines like "pull to the blue velvet" and the whole part about "Back and forth we ply these oars, They move in time and get entwined" decribing them making love and then the part about ripend fruit could be the pregnancy and having a child.

    General CommentWoah, FFAMikey- Never thought of it that way before, but it makes perfect sense, especially the verse towards the end:
    "Branches are bare with a pulse underneath
    Flowering slowly inside
    Your hands are warm and my body is wide
    To hold all the promise of blue-velvet dark and stars"
    The pulse being the baby, of course, and the wide body being...well, I think you get the picture ;)
    Either way, gorgeous song.
