Would you trade me for all the pretty girls,
All the ones who came before?
Who left you broken hearted,
With your back up against the wall.
Would you cash in all your high times?
For some lasting company,
Or a warm soft breast for you to lay your head on,
For all of eternity.

Well if your holding out on something,
Then just reach and you'll rise above,
Give me Sun, give me Dirt, give me Water,
Give me sweet everlasting love.

Would you travel right across the world,
To meet a woman that you didn't know?
If you thought that she might be the one,
To put your roots down with and grow.
Would you take her hand and walk with her,
Through the narrow gate of life?
Oh, Gather your load,
Prepare to travel the road,
That's going to lead you from trouble and strife.

Well if your holding out on something,
Then just reach and you'll rise above,
Give me Sun, give me Dirt, give me Water,
Give me sweet... ah ah ah

Would you trade me for all the pretty girls,
All the ones who came before?
Who left you, broken hearted,
With your back up against a wall,
Would you cash in all your high times,
For some lasting company,
Or a warm soft breast for you to lay your head on,
For all of eternity.

Well if your holding out on something,
Then just reach and we'll rise above,
Give me Sun, give me Dirt, give me Water,
Give me sweet everlasting love.

Give me Sun, give me Dirt, give me Water,
Give me sweet,
Everlasting love.
