We said our promises by candlelight
You held my hands, I was dressed in white
We were young
How can we see that far?
How can we see that far?

I knew I wanted you like no one else
I told my momma that I'd found myself
In your eyes
How can we see that far?
How can we see that far?

But like your daddy said
The same sun that melts the wax can harden clay
And the same rain that drowns the rat will grow the hay
And the mighty wind that knocks us down
If we lean into it
Will drive our fears away.

And then I woke you in the dead of night
To hold my hands, push away the fright
Life had come (how can we see that far?) - a son
How can we see that far?

Yeah, we were nervous and a little scared
Until the music of our baby's cry
Filled the air
How can we see that far? (How can we see that far?)

But like your daddy said
The same sun that melts the wax can harden clay
And the same rain that drowns the rat will grow the hay
And the mighty wind that knocks us down
If we lean into it
Will drive our fears away.

We might die
We might live
We could hurt each other badly
Do things, things so hard to forgive
Ooh, and if time is not our friend
Your mind might forget me before the end
And oh, I cannot
I cannot look that far.

But like your daddy said
(How can we see that far?)
The same sun that melts the wax can harden clay
And the same rain that drowns the rat will grow the hay
And the mighty wind that knocks us down
If we lean into it
How can we see that far?
Gotta lean into it
Will drive our fears away

It's the same sun, yeah
And the same rain
It's the same sun
And the same rain.
