"We Were There"
(Recorded by James Nihan and Tim Bays)

Words & Music by James Nihan and Tim Bays

Sun in the sky like a big copper ladle
Pouring honey down the riverbank
An old canoe rocking like a cradle
So full of love it almost sank
You smiled a sunburned smile
And asked where we were bound
And looking back I see
That like no place I'd ever found
We were there

By the water's edge I found a great blue heron's feather
And I put it in your raven hair
And in the dappled sunlight we lay down together
Holding each other like hands in prayer
Without a care
For what lay up around the bend
We didn't have to try
To find that rainbow's end
We were there

Now and then we drift apart
Sometimes we're neither kind nor fair
But I know we can always find that place inside our hearts
'Cause once we were there

I just think of that sun like a big copper ladle
Pouring honey down the riverbank
And that old canoe rocking like a cradle
So full of love it almost sank
