How Can We See That Far Lyrics

We said our promises by candlelight
You held my hands, I was dressed in white
We were young
(How can we see that far? How can we see that far?)

I knew I wanted you like no one else
I told my momma that I'd found myself
In your eyes
(How can we see that far? How can we see that far?)

But like your daddy said
The same sun that melts the wax can harden clay
And the same rain that drowns the rat will grow the hay
And the mighty wind that knocks us down
If we lean to it will drive our fears away

And then I woke you in the dead of night
To hold my hands, push away the fright
Life had come, a son
(How can we see that far? How can we see that far?)

Yeah, we were nervous and a little scared
Until the music of our baby's cry
Filled the air
(How can we see that far? How can we see that far?)

But like your daddy said
The same sun that melts the wax can harden clay
And the same rain that drowns the rat will grow the hay
And the mighty wind that knocks us down
If we lean to it will drive our fears away

We might die, we might live
We could hurt each other badly
Do things, things so hard to forgive
Ooh, and if time is not our friend
Your mind might forget me before the end
And oh, I cannot, I cannot look that far

But like your daddy said
(How can we see that far?)
The same sun that melts the wax can harden clay
And the same rain that drowns the rat will grow the hay
And the mighty wind that knocks us down
If we lean to it
(How can we see that far?)

Gotta lean to it, will drive our fears away
It's the same sun, yeah, and the same rain
It's the same sun and the same rain
