lyrics

LOVE WILL ABIDE
Chad and Jamie Wilson / Mary Gauthier / Darden Smith

Floating on a tin can in the middle of nowhere
My family’s in Virginia, but Texas is home
3,000 souls on a ship packed like sardines
Shoulder to shoulder but I’m still alone
Incoming e-mails that I can’t reply to
In River City, all coms are down
I send her my love through my prayers, through the heavens
Lord give her strength, keep us on solid ground

Suck it up shake it off trust in tomorrow
Lean in, let go, love will abide
Our love is bigger than the oceans between us
Hold on to knowing love will abide

I’m in the kitchen the phone won’t stop ringing
I sent 15 e-mails but you could not reply
I need you to hold me the news has me shaking
They say it is cancer and I’m terrified
The kids at the table, working on homework
Rush off to practice, no time for this now
I send him my love through my prayers, through the heavens
Lord give him strength, keep us on solid ground

Suck it up shake it off trust in tomorrow
Lean in, let go, love will abide
Our love is bigger than the oceans between us
Hold on to knowing love will abide
Hold on to knowing love will abide

(Instrumental)

Ships in, tours done, I’m home now, the lights out
The kids are in bed, we’ve dreamed of this time
Held together by prayers we sent through the heavens
We fall asleep knowing, love will abide
