Rosanne Cash – Nothing But The Truth lyrics
[Verse 1]
We've loved each other longer now than the falling trees
That stood up through revolution and grew out of our need
But we're called to be much stronger now on days as bright as these
When nothing shades our eyes against this darkest mysteries

[Chorus 1]
Time is a line we stumble and crawl
A perilous dream where both of us fall
Time is a shadow we venture upon
An ocean together we cross like a pond
On our way

[Verse 2]
Under the false ceiling of all we said and did
We stood away both hearts and hope like they were safest yet
A thief may live among us, who tumbles every code
But no wheels finding motion take shelter from the road

[Chorus 2]
Time is a line we stumble and crawl
A perilous dream where both of us fall
Time is a lantern held out in the rain
A river that rose like a runaway train
On our way

[Verse 3]
Now our story wanders a long way from the page
We kiss behind the curtain that falls on every stage
Memories won't be reconciled with promises past due
But still I promise everything and nothing but the truth

[Chorus 3]
Time is a line we stumble and crawl
A perilous dream where both of us fall
Time is a mirror made deeper by light
With every good morning
Good morning
Good night
