we come from the land of walnut and mulberry trees
cattle and corn and dairy farms and factories
i’ve waited for you like i know my love you’ve waited for me
to come together this way, this way
here in the house of my childhood with all of my dreams
i’m writing your name in the story of my history
i’m dressed in my best just to kiss you and we know what it means
so they can see us this way, starting today
this is not an unexamined soul
i’ve been learning with every hit and miss
how to lean into the wind, lean into the wind with you
love will balance every challenge of time, chance and change
this will be our dance, this is how we’ll sway
so i stopped searching every fleeting face in a crowd
for the one pair of eyes i could memorize inside and out
i send a message to you in the future looking back on us now
let’s remember this day, always
this is not an unexamined soul...
if we find a barrier, we can build a bridge
we can build a bridge
if we feel a storm cloud coming
we’ll always know where our shelter is
for this is not an unexamined soul...
