Believe in that our love was over
We climbed to the attic to find
A few of my favorite positions
So they wouldn't be left behind

But there in a dust covered shoe box
A bundle of old letter lie
Wrapped in an old faded ribbon
Like a message 'cross the great divide

Those letters from grandpa to grandma
Hand written with love through the years
Read just like the words from a love song
As we read them together in tears

The last one said "I've always love you"
and "don't ever feel sad or cry
Cause if I cross over before you
I'll be waiting 'cross the great divide"

Oh oh, love has a life of it's own
to love, love, love has a life of it's own

We knew when we finished those letters
No one will be saying goodbye
They sent us the gift of forever
In those letters 'cross the great divide

Oh, love has a life of it's own
Love, love - love is alive

Like those letters 'cross the great divide
