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 ---- Copyright Jamie Doe

The Bridge 02:40
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
