Lyrics

I took a dirt-road detour this morning
the one I passed up yesterday, when it was too dark to see.
But now that the sunlight had flooded the valley
I could see clearly
the road would be precious in places to pass.

And there was God’s holy quilt
stretched out across the canyon
like it was meant for me to see
so I turned my wheels that way.

You and I are on a patchwork journey
We’re torn to pieces to be sewn together
And I for one am full of tattered edges
So forgive me my stitches
In time, or mind, or other matters
I can love you, I can love you
I can love you if you want me to

We get wrapped up in all our conditions
We get so, so busy to keep us from feeling the time
Sometimes we look around
We can’t deny something is missing
But what would it feel like
to hold it and keep it when it comes around?

Maybe we will make it through a season
Or maybe we won’t last another second still
But I believe we could go through forever
Until our bodies feed the fragrance through the daffodils
I will love you, I will love you
I will love you, oh you know I will

You and I are on a patchwork journey
We’re torn to pieces to be sewn together
And I for one am full of tattered edges
So forgive me my stitches
In time, or mind, or other matters
I would love you, I would love you
I would love you, oh I hope you know
