lyrics

I awoke from my sleep
'Twas the first day of livin'
And a fresh dew lay light o'er the land
I put on my shirt and pulled up my sleeve
And look, there's a ring on my hand

CHORUS
Where before both my arms had been wildly flailing
For the want of worthy command
They now hung by my side, both steady and sure
Cantcha see, there's a ring on my hand


CHORUS
So I walked to the table
And I took my seat
For it seemed that the feast was prepared
And the loviest person that I'd ever known
Sat in the opposite chair

Well I've lived alone and the silence was deafening
Out of ear of the ancients bold plan
Now I feel my heart beat in the breast of another
And look, there's a ring on her hand


BRIDGE
This Ring surrounds our doubt
Breaks it down, kicks it out
Leaving two words spoke in this circle unbroken
Imagine all that we can do with someone to keep you and love you forever

Now I hear my heart beat in the breast of another
And look, there's a ring on my hand
