From “Progress of Love”

Life takes root in the deepest dark ground
Where bones, blood and honor have been trampled down
And beaten like ponies and driven to town
When reason is traded for rhyme

Your sailor is my lawyer
Your seamstress suits my king
But you are the mouth of the river
The star of my every dream

–Written by Joe Henry
