lyrics

WHEN YOU LOVE SOMEONE

In a church of dappled sunlight
You decide to go on living
When you love someone

Rain turns the river inside out
Hope returns to the broken heart
When you love someone

All the stray dogs come back around
and lost meadows of trust are found
When you love someone

You’ve seen it all - you know how to fight
But you don’t waste time or need to be right
When you love someone

But I fell so hard I got blinded
I should have taken my time
He told me that he loved me
Then he changed his mind
He led me to headwaters
And now I can’t come down
I’m wearing a thin blanket
And sleeping on the ground
How was I to know -
Your work is never done
When you love someone

The bright water, it flows through the timber
To a canyon floor of cold obsidian
When you love someone

The summits are clear of aspens and gin
And tenderness returns to your skin
When you love someone

You mend your fences where the air is sweet
And stand together in the face of the heat
When you love someone

The sky, the dirt, the seeds we sow
There’s nothing more for you to know
When you love someone

But I fell so hard I was blinded
I should have taken my time
He told me that he loved me
Then he changed his mind
He led me to headwaters
And now I can’t come down
I’m wearing a thin blanket
And sleeping on the ground
How was I to know -
Your work is never done
When you love someone
