From Ian Randall Thornton's debut EP "End Where You Begin".


Woah I was made to change
As I proceed to age
You know I shift and shape
Into another man
And I hardly recognize
My other younger lives
They testify
That no one stays the same
Woah and I will get married
To a very lovely girl
In some chapel I suppose
And my children she'll carry
As the years pass her by
She won't always be
The bride I chose
No, but love doesn't die it grows
Have you ever left your home
And the people you have known
To come back and find
That no one stayed the same
For as our bodies pass us by
Their cells multiply
Because life is filled with chances to
Woah and I will get married
To a very lovely girl
In some chapel I suppose
And as I leave the sanctuary
My mother will cry
And say goodbye
To the boy she rose
Oh but love doesn't die it grows
And my father did marry
A very lovely bride
Over thirty years ago
Oh and one day I'll Bury
Her next to his side
As a seed I'll sadly sow
Oh but love doesn't die
It grows
Your love will not die
But grow
