lyrics

Love takes so long.
It can’t find it’s way up the coast.
But I know what she’d say,
“Just close every eye and sleep.”
I call and call and call, but no.
The storm got too large and people are stuck.
Your words all got lost in the branches of trees
as the river rushed on to do as he pleased.

Love takes so long,
but then it appears like it’s never been gone.
Like it’s never been.
Baby, how long has it been
since your mother’s arms?
Well, it feels like a lifetime ago.
Have we lived that long?

Love takes so long, longer to grow than I’d hoped.
But sweeter than you can believe.
So strong, strong winds, leave her be.

I call and call and call, but no.
The storm got too large and people are stuck.
Your words all got lost in the branches of trees
as they came down the river, headed for me.

Sweeter than you can believe.
So strong, strong winds, leave her be.
