Lyrics

Teardrops melt you but you don't let it show
Your heart writes love songs your tongue never knows Maybe someday they'll find the gold in your bones When your name is carved in stone
You think it's hard now to say those words
I know it's hard now with the bridges you’ve burned But you think it's hard now – well try later on
When your name is carved in stone
When your name is carved in stone
Where you are – it's the only place you can start
Where you've been – it's the only place to leave your sin
You've got more treasure than a king in his grave You've got forever when you have one more day
So go write your name boy in the hearts of your home Before it's carved in stone
Before it's carved in stone
