Track Name: Cut From Stone
Cut from Stone

Our hearts are heavy
With weight and woe
No rain in deserts
For love to grow
But come open wide
There’s moisture in the air

Love me, my love
Love me, my love
Let me love you

Our hands are weary
Now day’s work’s through
No sleep till’ morning
All blacks and blues
But come close your eyes
There’s rest in cotton clouds

Love me, my love
Love me, my love
Let me love you

There was a river
Running through here
And you were cut from stone

Time made is passing
The lark held its tongue
The love brought breath to bone

There was blood at the birth
And we were born that day

Love me, my love

Track Name: The Bridge
The Bridge

The bridge that we built
Is falling down
Less of a bang, more of a whimper

What’s left on either bank
Is a slowly crumbling start
Distance is the river that
Broke this bridges heart

This bridge was built naively
Without so much as a plan
But believe me when I say
The work was done with honest hands
Oh she’s gone
Oh she’s gone

The bridge that we built
Is falling down
Less of a bang, more of a whimper

What’s left on either bank
Is a slowly crumbling start
Distance is the river that
Broke this bridges heart

With time the bridge it strengthened more
To carry heavy loads
Which in convey we passed over it
Upon newly beaten roads
Oh she’s gone
Oh she’s gone

The bridge that we built
Is falling down
Less of a bang, more of a whimper

What’s left on either bank
Is a slowly crumbling start
Distance is the river that
Broke this bridges heart
