Love Is Stronger Than Death, By Matt Johnson (The The)

Love, love, love…
Love, love, love…

Me and my friend were walking
In the cold light of mourning
Tears may blind the eyes, but the soul is not deceived
In this world even winter ain’t what it seems

Here come the blue skies here comes springtime
When the rivers run high and the tears run dry
When everything that dies…
Shall rise…

Love, love, love… is stronger than death
Love, love, love… is stronger than death

In our lives we hunger for those we cannot touch
All the thoughts unuttered and all the feelings unexpressed
Play upon our hearts like the mist upon our breath

But, awoken by grief, our spirits speak
How could you believe that the life within the seed
That grew arms that reached
And a heart that beat
And lips that smiled
And eyes that cried
Could ever die?

Here come the blue skies here comes springtime
When the rivers run high and the tears run dry
When everything that dies…
Shall rise…

Love, love, love… is stronger than death
Love, love, love… is stronger than death

Shall rise… Shall rise…
Shall rise… Shall rise…
