lyrics

My steps are louder than a train through the heavy snow that lays
Soft and seamless
Overflown
Under the Penny Pines disguised in the dull white of the day
The bark that shows looks like a shadow so

My stark quandaries rush to the top
A flood in a hummingbird pause

In my youth I was consumed in pursuit of what to do
With every stone unturned
And sold or thrown or burned
Pushing through a fragile expanse
I’m shaken by the weight of my hands
Who am I to hurt the ones who give me all I have?

The mountain frees me from entitled feelings

Forgive me I’ve just found myself
The pressure makes me someone else

Loneliness is self-sustaining
And phantom pain no less forgiving
In the city I forget how much I’ve known of both
The dreams about my father make my surest footing shake
In the quiet I crave nothing but grace
