We gave our hearts
Innocent and true
You believed in me
I trusted in you

Naively making promises
We had not yet lived
Too young to forget
What we’d have to forgive

I held your hands
As they held my heart
Together we blossomed
A fresh new start

Peaks became valleys
We rode out the waves
Our hearts got tumbled
But our love saves

The years are heavy
Our feet drag with their weight
Love becomes comfortable
It’s not as easy to relate

Living our promises
Is harder than it seems
The realities of “better or worse”
Never entered our dreams

The answers are unclear
Challenges suffocate the space
Maybe we should just back up
Clear the room, for grace
