Mother and father, tell me true
When you first held each other's hands and knew
That the hand you were holding was for you
Did your heart shake like this song?

When I spoke to my sister, she was wise
Said she trusted my heart but not my mind
So I put all my faith in blood and cried
And my heart shook like this song
Yes, my heart shook like this song

Oh, how am I ever gonna love you
If I do all of my living without giving it to you?

Look at my hands, they're the hands of a preacher
Sure his sermon's gonna change today
Look at my lips, they're the lips of a dreamer
Free at last to say the words they've saved

I told her
"Come closer"

We stepped inside a memory
Flickering and old
We stepped inside an old room
We'd always known
Our parents on the left side
Brother on the right
My sister in the center saying, "Be bold"

And all of our nights will be nights worth living
And all of our songs will be songs worth singing
And all of our hopes will be hopes worth dreaming
And all of our lives I'll be right there living

Let's take our cue from truth
It's hot in here
It's hotter than an angel
Once we leave this room
It's you and me
Let's sing because we're able to

Mother and father, tell me true
When you first held each other's hands and knew
That the hand you were holding was for you
Did your heart shake like this song?

One day I'll hold you
We'll be old
All our years stretched behind us, full and bold
And we'll speak of the night our song got told
Oh, we'll hold each other long
While we both shake like our song
