Written by Bri-anne Swan


Psalms / Tehillim Chapter 84
Job / Iyov Chapter 29

lyrics

An expanse of stars
Lives above my head
Lives above my head
And I’m below
And this willow’s stream
Will flow into the sea
Eventually
While I’m behind

If I loved you more
Would you love me more?

Here the sparrow builds
A home to lay her young
A home to lay her young
It’s what she knows
In her nest she wastes
Her song an aural maze
Of multiplying days
As the sand

If I loved you more
Would you love me more?
I could love you more
Will you love me more?
