lyrics

Sing me a song your mother would sing
Of god and man and the ocean between,
Of long before you were imagine to be,
When he was hovering over the sea

Then you were born in the swell of a storm
And carried away to a far away shore
Well, I knew that it all was written before
And love, you told me, was older than war

But oh, my love
Oh, they say it's just the way it goes

Play me a song your father would play
On a saw that he used for his pay
And out of his mouth the mountains were made
At the sound of his bow, the ocean obeyed

And Christ's in the cast of a radio play
You were the one who was calling his name
When a voice in the static said "Don't be afraid,
It's only in death can you be really be saved."

But oh, my love
Oh, they say it's just the way it goes
But oh, by love
Oh, but who are they to claim they know?
