All the news you bring
How it changes things
I could say it'll be all right
But I don't mean it right
Now

The hospital lights up
And everyone comes back
To heal for the coming thaw
And cracks in the ice

From cracks in the ice

The deer and I will stay
To witness the beauty
Of petrified trees
Caught in the freeze

Every mile is numb
It's captured everyone
Warming our hands
In the candlelight
The power went out
We walked around the house
Trying to find a bed
To quiet our heads
And listen for cracks in the ice

We pulled a branch to find
Our world's been crystallized
And some of the ones you see
Are the ones who snare your dreams
And some of those fallen things
Are strangely comforting
To me

It's here and I will stay
To witness the beauty
Suspended in still life
No matter how scary

And every mile is numb
We captured everyone
Warming our hands
In the candlelight
The power went out
We walked around the house
Trying to find a bed
To quiet our heads

To quiet our heads
To quiet our heads

    General CommentI think it's actually "It's here and I will stay"

    Second verse:
    "The hospital lights up
    And everyone comes back
    They're hear for the coming thaw
    And cracks in the ice"

    Fourth verse:
    "We pulled a branch to find
    Our world's been crystalized"

    General CommentThanks, just made those changes. I really like this song but some of the lyrics are hard to decipher, and they haven't played it the few times I've seen them.

    General CommentIt's "The deer and I will stay"! (It's in the booklet.)

    Such a beautiful image.

    Also, "To heal for a coming thaw"

    And "Every mile is numb / It's captured everyone"

    General CommentBlast it sm won't let me can't edit the lyrics, but thanks. I own the CD, but I didn't see a lyrics booklet in it.

    General CommentJust beautiful. Seems like it could be about remembering a loved one who has died.
