You can't judge the love by the lover
The sky by it's thunder
The road with no sign

You can't make the snow fall in summer
Or make him not want her
Not leave it behind

Maybe you'll stay in touch years down the road
And hope that he's still in your mind

The sun may come up and go down again
I'll still swear it's a beautiful life

Maybe we'll meet up in denver
Talk about weather
Talk of old times

I know every word that we said
Was what we both meant
Well we meant it at the time

Promise me that you'll be standing up straight
Chasing rivers, and shadows, and time

The sun may come up and go down again
And I'll still swear it's a beautiful life

Time flies, time cries
Oh time flies, time cries

So swim to the end of the river
Until there's no shiver
Left in your spine
Live like there won't be tomorrow
See through your sorrow
See through your own eyes

Try to remember these days down the road and
Try to remember this time

The sun may come up and go down again
I'll still swear it's a beautiful life

The sun may come up
The sun may go down
The sun may come up
The san may go down
Oh the sun may come up
The sun may go down

    the story this tells is absolutely stunning, and the way she sings it - almost to the point of breaking - is heartwrenching. and despite all the sadness hinted throughout, she says she 'still swears it's a beautiful life,' which is all sorts of striking. ♥
