See What Love Can Do

see what love can do
bridges the gap
between me and you

all the pains of the past
they’ll go by in a flash
won’t come back
can’t come back never again

see what love can do
see what love can do

it’s only you thinkin’
dark fears you been makin’
holdin’ hurt tight like it was a rare gem
you stirrin’ up all these tears
livin’ dark days as though they were years
when the boat ‘naw it ain’t ever been sinkin’

it’s only 2 inches deep
not an ocean of grief
with a bottom that’s not even there
see it’s a sad miserable lie
you’ve kept growin an’ growin’ inside
now it’s time for what love can do
see what love can do

bridge the gap between dark and light
crossin’ to what you know’s right
stop resistin’ stop wailin’
stop puttin’ up such a fight
now’s time it’s time go see
go and see
what great good our love can be
