Down by the river, scorned by the winter
I fell to the dust
When all through the meadow, a lullaby echoed
And swept through the earth

I wonder if this sweet sparrow's song
Will carry me to

You oh
No one could know
All that I hold of you

A blanket of black came down
And swallowed the light around
Your hand in mine
And although the night has veiled the sun
I'll never run from you
I wonder if my heart empties
Will you still see it's for

You oh
No one could know
All that I hold of you

And when my heart fell below the sea
The waters rose and you reached for me
There the ground shook 'neath my feet
And oh, I won't let go of

You oh
No one could know
All that I hold of you
Oh, storms come and go
And all that I'll hold is you
