"When love has got you in its throes Even the summer's heat just freezes your soul And the sweetest song - It just clanks along And the morning dew just says goodnight And leaves your heart undone It doesn't do to try and understand Nothin' that's as good as love ever made a lot of sense Like how the eagles fly And how the rattlers slide And what it is that comes to bind a woman and her man
Love's as strong as death my love Unyielding as the grave Relentless as the desert sun And rivers cannot wash my love away Lord, I won't let it wash away And many waters cannot quench love
There ain't nothing left to soothe you with Love has marked your soul the way the sun has marked your skin And there ain't no way to find no shade When your soul's the very thing That feeds the blaze that burns within you It just makes your cold heart melt The flames that burn as white as the very flames of hell So just hold on tight 'Cause it's a long ~ wild ride When you finally find the grace to love another as yourself
Love's as strong as death my love Unyielding as the grave Relentless as the desert sun And rivers cannot wash my love away ~ away! I won't let it wash away And many waters ~ it cannot quench love"
