Sweet Ever After
by Ellie Holcomb, Bear Rinehart

Album: Canyon


In the spirit of David and the cracks in the walls
And the schemes that we're all running
We're exposed to the rain coming down from the clouds
And the fire that falls from Heaven
But our tragedy binds what our ignorance hides
We all wind up here together
Yeah, our bodies are tired and our souls, they are blind
Bones broken by the weather

Got a lotta bad days still comin' our way
But a sweet ever after
Wind and waves breaking over our walls
But the ship, it don't shatter
The real life lesson 'bout a life well-lived
Is you lose what don't matter
But the sun's coming up on the stairway to Heaven
In the sweet ever after, in the sweet ever after

Woke up terrified in the middle of the night
To a storm, our whole house was shaking
Didn't know where to hide, the winds howling outside
Sounded like everything was breaking
Well, our tears fell like rain, when the morning light came
In the wake of that disaster
Brick and stone in streets, shattered glass in our feet
Homes splintered by the weather

Got a lotta bad days still comin' our way
But a sweet ever after
Wind and waves breaking over our walls
But the ship, it don't shatter
The real life lesson 'bout a life well-lived
Is you lose what don't matter
But the sun's coming up on the stairway to Heaven
In the sweet ever after, in the sweet ever after

If we listen, there's a sound
Beneath the footprints in all our towns
We're connected, like waves of grain
When we break wide open, we're all the same
When we break open, we're all the same

Got a lotta bad days still comin' our way
But a sweet ever after
Wind and waves breaking over our walls
But the ship, it don't shatter
The real life lesson 'bout a life well-lived
Is you lose what don't matter
But the sun's coming up on the stairway to Heaven
In the sweet ever after, in the sweet ever after
Sweet ever after, in the sweet ever after
