Distant Lands

Lyrics by Nathan Hamer and Miranda Zickler

I wrote down in a book, love, all the things that I thought you'd say
All those glances upon the wild of my heart still remain
When I caught myself thinkin', I just looked down and smiled
I knew I would wait for you, and I knew I would wait a while
I knew I would wait a while

We found love so we left and sailed away,
Distant lands, with a hand in a hand, we'll spend our days, so
Give me a shove so I can make this dream come true
Spend my days sittin' next to you, spend my days sittin' next to you

Call it down to the water, where the clouds roll high and wild
Shake it loose from the depths of me and rock me like a child
Can you hear the dogs cry, through the kicks and calls of the night?
Can you hear me call to you for the rest of the breaking light?
For the rest of the breaking light,

We found love so we left and sailed away,
Distant lands, with a hand in a hand, we'll spend our days, so
Give me a shove so I can make this dream come true
Spend my days sittin' next to you, spend my days sittin' next to you

I would take your hand now, if I only knew I could
I would take your hand now, love, run far away into the wood
Lift me up with just a smile, the only thing I quite recall
Simple laughter far into the night that rewrites a history so small
That rewrites a history so small

I got lost in a world that was only a mile,
Starin' hard into your eyes, I kiss that smile, and
We got a love that grows, never give it away, my friends
Somethin' I'll remember till the end
Somethin' I'll remember till the end

We found love
We found love so we left and sailed away
