  1. Only Forever

LYRICS

I waited for you
I waited for you a long time
Stood outside the schoolyard
swings twisting in the wind

I prayed for you
I prayed for you a long time
To chase you in the park
Try to catch you in a sprint

Things I know but cannot explain
How life is measured by what you lose and what you gain
How to fight for what you treasure, let it go when it’s time to surrender
And how I’ll love you only forever

You came to me
You grew up tall and gangly
I taught you how to swim
Taught you everything I know

But maybe God was lonely
Or fate knew all along
I’d protect you with my life
But Lord knows I’m not that strong

Things I know but cannot explain
How life is measured by what you lose and what you gain
How to fight for what you treasure, let it go when it’s time to surrender
And how I’ll love you only forever

They say wounds yield a purpose
And cracks bring the light
All I know is stone on the earth
Angel in the sky

Things I know but cannot explain
How life is measured by what you lose and what you gain
How to fight for what you treasure, let it go when it’s time to surrender
And how I’ll love you only forever
