about

a geological love song by Patrick Hutchinson, written in a campsite in Saskatchewan for his love's birthday

lyrics

WATER & STONE

You stand firm like a rock; I flow round like the water
I’m an old dreamer’s son; you’re a businessman’s daughter
I’ll smooth your rough edges, as onward I flow
You’ll give me some grit to take on as I go

We’re not water and stone, we’re just skin flesh & bone
We don’t have geological ages
In this moment of life, we’ve got no time for strife
We’ve still got unwritten pages

You’re my own chosen city, on a hill proudly set
I’m tired & polluted, but I’m not done yet
I’ll cajole & caress you, as I pass by your sides
I’ll kiss your royal mountain, while I’m bound for the tides

We’re not water and stone, we’re just skin flesh & bone
We don’t have geological ages
In this moment of life, we’ve got no time for strife
We’ve still got unwritten pages
