as forever as you lyrics – face to face

—————–
i took a hammer, and a chisel iron cold,
and had my dreams engraved on a mountaintop of stone.
but the mountain crumbled my dreams in seas of blue;
there’s nothing in this world as forever as you.
i touched the earth with a question in my hand,
i asked two holy men to help me understand.
but the preachers quarreled as to just what i should do;
there’s nothing in this world as forever as you.
in these temporary days,
you’re my sole and saving grace,
there is nothing in this world as forever as you.
