Vanessa carlton - More than this

Cradling stones hold fire bright as crickets call out to the moonlight
And as you lean in to steal a kiss I'll never need more than this

We all share the pain of our histories but the ache goes away
If you could see
This night under the stars
Well I call it peace if you say, "I'll never need more than this"

The trees grow so thick you can barely see through
The forest bestows the simplest of truths
You think you'll be happy if granted one more wish
But the truth is you'll never need more
You'll never need more
You'll never need more than this

Want so much in life
There's so much to be
We sail through our youth so impatiently
Until we see that years move along
And soldiers and heroes come home
And they carry a song


Don't live in forgotten times
May this always remind you of the sea under the sky's blue looking glass

Let's make this our story
Let's live in the glory
Time
It fades away
Precious as a song 'cause someday we'll be gone

Cradling stones hold fire bright as we watch the glow of the morning light
Someday our bones
Here they will lie and so we sing as the years move along
And soldiers and heroes come home
And they carry a song

Let's make this our story
Let's live in the glory
Time
It fades away
Precious as a song 'cause someday we'll be gone
