I know what I have to do now. I’ve got to keep breathing; because tomorrow the sun will rise. Who knows what the tide could bring?
When I was a kid we would spend the summers in the Upper Peninsula and every year we wouldn’t get to the cabin till the middle of the night. So, it would be pitch black in the middle of the woods and I could never see anything in front of the headlights; but I felt so safe because my dad was driving. He was like some kind of super hero who could see way out into the darkness. And now he’s just gone. And it’s pitch black. I can’t see where I’m going. I can’t see anything.
When I was a little girl I had a rag doll.
The only doll I’ve ever owned.
Now I love you just the way I loved that rag doll,
But only now my love has grown.
And it gets stronger in every way,
And it gets deeper let me say,
And it gets higher day by day.
Do I love you? My oh my.
River deep, mountain high.
If I lost you would I cry
Oh how I love you baby, baby, baby, baby.
