LOVE'S GLORY

Original Patti Scialfa version


Oh, baby tell me stories
About those pretty worlds
Who will deliver us from blame
Who will walk free
Who will walk in chains
And when the sky is falling
What do we believe in
When everything we learned to trust
Turns around and makes a fool of us

Well, baby I, I'll believe in all of love's glory
So don't you try and talk me down
I'm not afraid to stumble
Baby, I can fall

Oh, my tender dreams
I gave them such fragile wings
And I sent them up to heaven
But heaven was just too high
And I watched them falter against the sky

But, baby, I still believe in all of love's glory
I gave that promise to the rain
I'm not afraid to stumble
Baby, I can fall

Oh, if I could I'd play out my part
I'd cup my hands
And I'd collect the rain that falls inside your heart
But I can't stop the rain
I can't hold back the thunder
Oh, but I can make one vow
And promise you my heart right now

'Cause, baby I, I believe in all of love's glory
And no one's gonna talk me down
I'm not afraid to stumble
Baby, I can fall
I'm not afraid to stumble
Baby, I can fall
I'm not afraid to stumble
Baby, I can fall
