GRIST FOR THE MILL Sung by Ken Post and Lori Dortono
Lyrics
GRIST FOR THE MILL
© 2004 Mary Cole and Greg Garrett, Cole/Garrett Music.
Written by Mary Cole and Greg Garrett.

Male:

We've been together for so long ( so long ).
Our doubts and our fears should be long gone ( long gone ).
But we're growing apart, I've lost the person I?ve known
And what will we do with the harvest we've sown?

Grist for the mill! Grist for the mill!
People keep talkin' and I?ve had my fill.
Do you hear what they're saying?
It's a bitter pill-
Grist for the mill. Grist for the mill.

The life that we've shared has been so strong ( so strong ).
How could our love have gone so wrong ( so wrong )?
And the whispers are growing I feel lost and alone,
And the once fertile soil has gone dry as a bone.

Grist for the mill! Grist for the mill!
People keep talkin' and I've had my fill.
Do you hear what they're saying?
It's a bitter pill-
Grist for the mill. Grist for the mill.

Female:

Darlin', don't you see those mills feed on rumour
But our love re-waters the stream.
Love keeps everything green.
Love keeps everything green


Grist for their mill! Grist for their mill!
Let them keep talkin' till they've had their fill.
Just as long as you love me
Talk is Grist for their mill.
Grist for their mill! Grist for their mill!

Love's held us together for so long ( so long ).
Gossip can't weaken love so strong ( so strong ).
While our mill-wheel keeps turning and our harvest is grown,
See the love in my eyes and you're never alone.

Both:

Grist for their mill! Grist for their mill!
Let them keep talkin? till they've had their fill.
Just as long as you love me,
Talk is Grist for their mill.
Grist for their mill! Grist for their mill!
