To Have and To Hold

Verse 1
Here we are now, ten years running
Doesn't feel that long at all
I remember the 8th of August
Dancing in the wedding hall

Pre-Chorus 1
We were so young, there's so much that we couldn't have known
We're just beginning to see what the future can hold

Chorus 1
I'm learning that love is a
Beautiful garden that's bursting with color when tended with care
And I'm learning that love is a wild endeavor
With no guarantees but the life that we share
And I'm learning that love is a sign and a wonder
And healing us more than we ever could know
And there's plenty of reasons why things can be left to grow cold
But I still believe in our promise to have and to hold
To have and to hold

Verse 2
Can't believe how fast they're growing
We were warned, but I'm still surprised
Children play, but, oh, they're watching
Learning love before their eyes

Pre-Chorus 2
We're sharpening arrows and aiming them into the sky
And over and over, we're helping them learn how to fly

Chorus 2
We'll show them a love that can live through an argument
Filled with forgiveness when hurt has been done
And we'll show them a love that can handle misfortune
And still be around when the morning has come
And I'm not naive, we've got miles to go
But we've proven our love can grow deeper with time
And there's plenty of reasons why things can be left to grow cold
But I still believe in our promise to have and to hold
To have and to hold

Post-Chorus
All our days
To have and to hold
Oh

Chorus 1
I'm learning that love is a
Beautiful garden that's bursting with color when tended with care
And I'm learning that love is a wild endeavor
With no guarantees but the life that we share
And I'm learning that love is a sign and a wonder
And healing us more than we ever could know
And there's plenty of reasons why things can be left to grow cold
But I still believe in our promise to have and to hold
To have and to hold

Outro
All our days
To have and to hold
