lyrics

[Verse]
The odds were much higher that Adam was about to meet Eve
Than the chance that it was likely for us to meet each other at all
What are better metaphors than stories taken right from the Bible?
It's a proven fact our love is adamant and unconditional

[Chorus]
I smile
Even when the sun don't shine
Cause I read between the lines
Happens all the time

[Post-Chorus]
Oeh, oeh
You make me believe in the power to read between the lines

[Verse]
So what do people mean, when they say, "may the force be with you"?
Well I never watched the movie but I know that the stars were aligned
Thanks to a divine intervention or whatever the reason
Apparently our paths had to cross so I can call you mine

[Chorus]
I smile
Even when the sun don't shine
Cause I read between the lines
Happens all the time

[Post-Chorus]
Oeh, oeh
You make me believe in the power to read between the lines

Oeh, oeh
You make me believe in the power to dream between the nights
