"One Hundred Million Years" as written by and M. Ward....
This river that we ride has always been alive
Oh, my soul, one hundred million years
This river that we ride will roll on when we die
Oh, my soul, one hundred million years

[Chorus:]
And this love, this love between you and I
Is older than that burning ball of fire up in the sky
And the gale that fills our sail

And the lights that shine tonight have always been alive
Oh, my soul, one hundred million years
Yeah, the lights that shine tonight will burn on when we die
Oh, my soul, one hundred million years

[Chorus: x2]

    My InterpretationOur souls have been around forever and will continue after this body dies. The river, the light, the love, and the soul are all the same here; they all are everlasting.

    General Commenti believe he's saying, "this love, this love between you and i." not light.
    also, this is such a beautiful song.

    General Commentis he saying "Hold my soul one hundred million years," OR "O my soul one hundred million years." I know which one makes more sense.
