Many Waters

Story Behind The Song

The night before a friend was to marry I was very troubled because I knew in my heart that he was the wrong guy for her. I wrote this song that night and gave the lyrics to her in the morning - expressing my ideal. Lyrically I pay a bit of homage to MacAr

Many waters cannot quench true love
And you can't drown love, it just rises above
Let the rain fall down, let the floods rise up
The house that love built still stands up

(1) It started in the garden where the wedding was
And it became a parable of enduring love
They planned for sunny weather, a perfect time
But it rained instead and brought to mind the rhyme?

(2) Their faithful friends and family all stood by their side
The best man held umbrellas, mom and died both cried
And as they said their vows they talked about the weather
?Come hell or high water Babe we're gonna stay together?

(Bridge) So many talk of love while the sun still shines
But raindrops come and melt away the ties that bind
But others are like the wedding cake
Left in the driving rain
The icing and the flour melt
But the bride and groom remain
