lyrics

The wagon told the wheel,
“I like the way you roll”
The ankle told the heel
“I think I see your soul”

They understand what I haven’t yet
Steady and sure, I’m only moving slow

The kernel told the corn
“I think I’m stuck on you”
The bottle told the cork
“They’d have to pry me loose from you”

They understand what I haven’t yet
Steady and sure, I’m only moving slow


One day I’ll say it to your face
Without a breath or hesitation
I’ll say it to your face
The words we say alone
Won’t ever see the light
But they’ll be how we make a life
They’ll be how we make a life

Oh, for an honest word to make its way to you
It’s got a lotta mess to get through
If it goes unheard, then I will too

The leaves they told the tree
“I don’t mind the fall”
The flower told the bee
“You can have it all”

And one day I’ll say it to your face
Without a breath or hesitation
I’ll say it to your face
The words we say alone
Won’t ever see the light
But they’ll be how we make a life
