What did you see?
When, walking down bridges, did you come
into cloud light at sea,
green fields forever,
kindness of strangers,
tracing the old streets, tracing the names?

If somebody calls to me
I’m hoping to not fear, not fear to answer.
How will it be?

    My OpinionThey have a knack for creating these incredibly bittersweet songs, especially on We Walked In Song.

    General CommentThis song is one of the deepest, most haunting and yet most encouraging songs I've ever listened to. Incredible.

    She's basically just talking about the fear of having to give an account of an utterly saturated experience. Sometimes we feel like we have to account for every experience and yet, there is a fear of cutting the experience short, distilling it for the consumption of others.

    What a great song. I love it!
