lyrics

for days and lives i did wander alone
‘neath broken skies and cold as stone
until the time when my poor heart lost its mind
to find the marrow of your bones

what would it be like not to ever have known
not seen that light so wild and pure and strong
i don't care, i don't ever want to know
i love the marrow of your bones

sailing, sailing, we’re sailing out to sea
sailing, sailing, on wings of mystery

come the hail, come the arrows and stones
i love you to the marrow of your bones

so here we are at last, under this canopy of love
free from all the past, flying high, flying fast above
hand in hand, along the narrow road to home
that leads to the marrow of the bone

yes i love the very marrow of your bones
