Lyrics:

Every day follows the next
in a line of moments that I can’t get back
but you came up and showed me the way
to get back the good times and store them away

It’s easy to get lost in the dark of the night
when you don’t have a candle to hold to the light
but if you hold on, til the sunrise
you’ll start to see through her beautiful eyes

and the book that I’m writing is bound
by the sights and the smells and the sounds
and the words that are written in stone
still have the power to cut to the bone

and when I’m old and grey
i hope you’ll sit with me and look at me that way
and if the stars should change
ill always think of how you saved me from the flame

Days into weeks and weeks into years
sweat into blood and blood into tears
hate into healing and heart into hope
all of the feelings that make up your home

and the book that I’m writing is bound
by the sights and the smells and the sounds
and the words that are written in stone
still have the power to cut to the bone
