Good Love Lingers On

Archis 2016

When they tell my story through
Will they speak of my love for you?
Carved in trees down country roads
Sewn in our children's winter coats

How many sunsets?
How deep the blues and the reds?
How many heartbeats?
How many falling leaves?

How high can you fly
Till you can't see the ground?
Long after we are gone, good love lingers on
Good love lingers on

Time's the story in reverse
That trains the river to its course
And while it's crying at the wake
It's laughing in your birthday cake

How many rocks thrown?
How many broken bones?
How many bruised knees?
How many Christmas trees?

How high can you fly
Till you can't see the ground?

I'm never gonna leave you
And when they lay my body down
A memory will find you
It will echo through the ground
I always meant to tell you
But I always thought you knew
I saw forever
The moment I met you

Long after we are gone, good love lingers on
Good love lingers on

The creaking of your parents' stairs
Dancing in our underwear
And the treehouse that we made
From a year of Saturdays
The sound of sails against the rain
We are only on our way
And if eternity is true they will carve it out of you

If eternity is true, they will carve it out of you

If eternity is true, they will carve it out of you

If eternity is true, they will carve it out of you

If eternity is true, they will carve it out of you

If eternity is true, they will carve it out of you

If eternity is true, they will carve it out of you
