Kris Delmhorst – If Not For Love lyrics

Have you asked the wildest bird to change his song?
It's the only one he knows
Have you tried to keep the river from the sea?
Still that river flows
If not for love, what are you for?

We blow like weeds upon the wind
We hold the ground, we drink the rain
We throw our seeds into the world
Before we go the way we came
If not for love, what are you for?

If there was only time enough
For one last look, what would you see?
If there was only breath enough
For one more word, what would it be?
If not for love, what are you for?
