Everything But You

Daylight opens the shade
April melts the snow
Wallpaper fades
People come and go
Still you remain tender, strong, and true
Time changes everything but you

Young souls step to the stage
Oceans rise and fall
Tears stain the page
Shadows climb the wall
Now you're the one I trust to help me through
Time changes everything but you

Today I carve a stone
With your name next to mine alone

Seven seas turn back to rain
Bottles fill the glass
The whistle calls the train
Destinations pass
Free from despair, you make each day new
Time changes everything but you
