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
