This Love Will Carry

Dougie McLean

It's a thin line that leads us
And keeps someone from shame
The dark clouds quickly gather
Along the way they came
There's fear out on the mountain
And death out on the plane
There's heartbreak and heartache
In a shadow of the flame


But this love will carry
This love will carry me
I know this love will carry me

The strongest web will tangle
The sweetest bloom will fall
Somewhere in the distance
We try and catch it all
Success lasts for a moment
And failures always near
But you look down at your blistered hands
As turns another year

Chorus 2x

So these days are golden
They must not waste away
Our time is like that flower
And soon it will decay
And though by storms we weaken
Uncertainty is sure
Like the coming of the dawn
It's ours forever more

Chorus 3x
