slow steps in silence leave tracks in fresh snows some folks are frightened of it i oughta know but i won't let you go alone i'll stay by your side until it's done til sun sets, and foxes find their sleeping dens to hide in gray shapes are everywhere spottings on the hills curves of clear smoke rising like a silver bell i've been roaming north and south i'd stop to rest if i could sit at the bank and look around like the yellow daisies do but i won't let you go alone i'll stay by your side until it's done til sun sets, and foxes find their sleeping dens to hide in the tide in the night makes the river roar like i've never heard before i take a dip and lean back in and wait for what's around the bend cause i won't let you go alone i'll stay by your side until it's done

there's someone in the street you pass by quietly the shuffling of feet crossed and journeying if occasion comes to see you'll meet eyes briefly and you'll keep moving and they'll keep moving and just as when the springtime bees follow us without stinging from day one we're subject to unknown phenomena and where do they sleep and who is with them which secrets did they keep and who'd they tell when it all came out quick and hearts fell quicker and it was sunday the sun was shining and just as when the twilight rain follows us mysteriously all along we're subject to unknown phenomena

tell me your secrets bad news and regrets don't hide the big things i can take them into my quiet place it's brimming with wild things all waiting patiently for a moment to see straight and the fallen moon is still full because of you and the splintered trees were a wasted offering at the altar of all you can't say tell me just one wish you were never granted and where did they make off with it and what should we call them and how are things right now sitting in the mists and in the fallout and your sparkling sun isn't fooling anyone another twisted day in the breeze just melts away surrounded by all you can't say

a blocked road a winding wind that slips through holes left wide open by a distant force from a distant past unknown i won't let go i won't give in though at times i feel my feet slip in to pools of blackened tar and dust we trust that it's all on the horizon resolved that it all fits inside of the breaths we may hold (in our sore throats) a moment to notice what's here standing on this ledge looking at this sea sunlight fills my eyes completely and i will throw this stone the furthest i can reach bring it to me and it's all on the horizon resolved and it all fits inside of the breaths we may hold (in our sore throats) a moment to notice what's here
