The One Who Knows Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Time it was I had a dream
And you're that dream come true
An' if I had the world to give
I'd give it all to you

I'll take you to the mountains
I will take you to the sea
I'll show you how this life became
A miracle to me

You'll fly away but take my hand until that day
So when they ask how far love goes
When my job's done you'll be the one who knows

All the things you treasure most
Will be the hardest won
I will watch you struggle long
Before the answers come

But I won't make it harder
I'll be there to cheer you on
I'll shine the light that guides you down
The road you're walking on

You'll fly away but take my hand until that day
So when they ask how far love goes
When my job's done you'll be the one who knows

Before the mountains call to you
Before you leave this home
Wanna teach your heart to trust
As I will teach my own

But sometimes I will ask the moon
Where it shined upon you last
And shake my head and laugh and say
"It all went by so fast"

You'll fly away, but take my hand until that day
(Until that day)
So when they ask how far love goes
When my job's done you'll be the one who knows
