lyrics

I asked to marry this old house
it creaked and shuttered at the sound
the wind blows nightly in these ghosts
I sleep alone but I am found

when autumn came and took the leaves
I gathered bones to build a bed
deep in your heart I found a stone
a stone can make a faithful friend

and all these years I'll hold.

you know I love these rock walls.
a stone can be a quiet friend
this work may be left undone
and we may leave these things unsaid

and all these years I'll hold
and all these stones I know.
and all these years I'll hold.
