The Long Row by Steven Wheeler-

I know the weight of the worlds on your shoulder  I see the fear of love in your eyes  I know that time is making us older  But I'll love you til the day I die  I feel the pain you've lived with forever  I know your hearts been tattered and torn  But I'll walk with you to the edge forever  To ensure your love in not forlorn  It's a long row to heaven on this ship of love we ride  And on this long, long row to heaven  I will be there by your side  When the end of the voyage is upon us  And it's time for us to move on  Just take my hand and hold it  So we never make this voyage alone  We will live out our lives forever, and ever and ever, and more  And plant our love like seedlings  To grow on that beautiful shore
