lyrics

I found you in Gabriel’s yard
Staring at the people running through the fields
I grabbed your hand so tight
And we watched a world leave its world behind
St. Louis is New York City
New York City is like ancient Pompeii
Florida is underwater now
And the West Coast is a torn out page in history

But though earthquakes roar underneath
And mountains crumble into seas
Though the winds may level cities
When it all burns away, nothing but love can stay

We left our bags out on the porch
As the clouds began to churn
I thought I heard a trumpet saying
“It’s only getting worse”
So as the rain began to fall
I held you like a knife against my skin
I begged God for one more day and then
I kissed what I knew goodbye

But though earthquakes roar underneath
And mountains crumble into seas
Though the winds may level cities
When it all burns away, nothing but love can stay

Nothing but love can stay
