It was late when we made our way
Across the rocks and the waves
Of that cliff in the shape of an Indian face

We looked at the sky into the ocean below us
You said something smart about the fish and the stars
So I took your hand
Showed you your timeline
The past and the future of where we are

Time is in your hands now, my love
Time is in your hands, my love
My heart is in your hands now, my love
My heart is in your hands, my love
Life is in your hands now, my love
Life is in your hands, my love

    General CommentThis sounds like a recap of the night a guy proposed. Late at night, they go to a beautiful spot by the beach, just talking (We looked at the sky into the ocean below us. You said something smart about the fish and the stars). Then he gives her a ring (takes her hand, showing her the timeline of where they are). His heart is in her hands now.
