Church bells ringing on our wedding day
Climbed in that limo and rode away
Guess you'll always hear some people say
"They're never gonna make it"

We settled in and we settled down
In this quiet little seaside town
You were the rock I built my world around
And life won't ever break it

We are one heartbeat in the darkness
We are one lasting answered prayer
We are one unbroken promise
We are two, true believers

It wasn't easy getting here today
Sometimes you stumbled or I lost my way
But every roadblock was a chance to say
Take my hand, I'm here beside you

We worked and made it through the toughest parts
Now every day's another chance to start
To look around and see that where we are
Is where we were trying to get to

We are one heartbeat in the darkness
We are one lasting answered prayer
We are one unbroken promise
We are two, true believers

We are one before our God in heaven
We are one road when the going gets rough
We are one now and forever
We are one name, one life, one flame

We are one heartbeat in the darkness
We are one lasting answered prayer
We are one unbroken promise
We are two, true believers
We are two, true believers

Song facts

The song is about a married couple sticking together, as Rucker explained to CBS: "It's so me and so personal in my life. It's the story about a husband and a wife who all their friends said were never going to make it and all these years later all their friends are divorced and they're still together and everybody is still saying they're never going to make it."

"When I was singing it I was just laughing because it's such a defiant song," he continued. "It's a song that's saying to everybody, 'Screw you. I know we're going to make it. Through all the crap, we're going to be the two that make it.' And that's how my wife and I feel. I love the song."
