Patty Griffin - Love Throws A Line lyrics

Let's write a story of a tidal wave
We run out of luck, we run out of days
We run out of gas a hundred miles away
From a station

There's a war and a plague, smoke and disaster
Lions in the coliseum, screams of laughter
Motherless children, a witness and a bible
Nothing but rain ahead and no chance for our survival

Just before the flood comes
Just before the night falls
Just before the blood runs
Into the valley
Just before my eyes go
Just before we can't go
No further
Love throws a line to you and me

I heard someone calling me from very far away
Sister, oh sister, did I hear them say?
Prisoner of this endless story of pain
You hold the key, try to find the way

Just before the flood comes
Just before the night falls
Just before the blood runs
Into the valley
Just before my eyes go
Just before it all blows
To pieces
We see love throw a line to you and me

Love throw a line
Love throw a line
Love throw a line
Love throw a line

Love, you better pick up your pace
If we're going to win this race
Love, we're running out of time
Pull yourself up from behind

Love throw a line
Love throw a line
Love throw a line
Love throw a line
