Nanci Griffith


Oh the grace that true love holds
When hearts grow weary for time alone
You give it room and the warm to hold
And it'll always come home

True love is faithful all on it's own
Hearts know when they should fly alone
When the mind is rested and the hearts at ease
Two loves car give to each other's needs


You can fool yourself and fool your dreams
But you can't fool your heart and you can't fool me
Love is a sailor sailing out to sea
One of these days you'll need a harbour in me


Can be found on the album Time For Touching Home
