Lyrics

Sunrise in the summer sky, a perfect love in flight

Shadows flew, the hours grew till we never said goodnight

It's like I merely turned my head and you were there

It felt so sure I'd forgotten to be scared

As we threw away the loneliness we shared

 

Chorus:

Only first love grows this grace

Only first love grows this grace

There's a bounty full of gold still ‘cause we won and kept the prize

It’s a mountain not a molehill; you’re the best thing in my life

 

Now flames chase time across the sky, how suddenly it dies

The passion that we held so deep runs scared in older eyes

When we’re done the words we want will flow

And cradle all the truths that we both know

From high above the angels watch us go, and they sing

(chorus)

 

No love is fixed without some give

To let hearts breathe, not break to live

When perfect luck seems double-crossed

Just take a breath and weigh the cost,

Then nothing’s lost, and we’ll sing

 

Only first love grows this grace

Only first love grows this grace

So we never reached perfection, who can ever get it right

Let’s just ride the whirl, we’ll show the world to believe in love’s first light

There's a bounty full of gold still ‘cause we won and kept the prize

It’s a mountain not a molehill; you’re the best thing in my life
