Stone by Stone

This rain, may cause a flood,
the earth between us, become mud.
We try to walk, we get mired.
We get nowhere, but tired. So,
I'm building a pathway, to my baby,
stone by stone.

When the water, gets too high,
it's hard, to get by dry.
You can't wade, you'd have to swim.
you might slip, and fall right in. So,
I'm building a footbridge, to my baby,
stone by stone.

Stone by stone,
Stone by stone.
I'm building a lifetime with my baby,
Stone by stone.

And when the wind, begins to blow
we got no place to go.
The way it cuts right through, our little shack.
We'd have to stuff up every little crack. So,
I'm building a castle, for my baby,
stone by stone.

(chorus)

When the summer sun, beats down,
and the dust comes up from the ground.
And makes a big ol' cloud, so mean,
it's hard to breath, it's hard to stay clean. So,
I'm building a cool pond, for my baby,
stone by stone.

(chorus)

When the snow gets deep,
and a chill, begins to creep.
An extra blanket or two won't do,
I see you shakin' and shiverin' too. So,
I'm building a fireplace, for my baby,
stone by stone.

(chorus)

Close this window.
