somehow, we'll have to find
the bones that we left in each other's mouths
'cause you still have the ones that allow me to stand upright
and now the night, it ties me tight to the bare trees
and now the night, it holds me tight to my brown knees
this will be a gray whale winter
pulling everyone under
golden breaths going down deeper
we will need to have fireflies in our mouths
and swallow them down, down, down, down, down
and swallow them down, down, down, down, down

so when we leave the sky behind
we will find ourselves
blowing under waves black as crows' wings
glowing under waves black as crows' wings
so when we leave the sky behind
we will find ourselves
blowing under waves black as crows' wings
glowing under waves black as crows' wings
blowing under waves black as crows' wings

somehow, we'll have to find
the sun that we left in each other's mouths
'cause i still have the light you left in my teeth
and now the day, it throws me out on the streets
and now the day, it throws me out of your reach

this will be the end of garden mothers
throwing their fists through the walls
failing to catch the falling hope clouds
she will need to have fireflies in her belly today
to shine their light on a path so she won't stray
so she won't stray

so when she leaves the sky behind
she will find herself
blowing through the forest black as crows' eyes
glowing through the forest black as crows' eyes
so when she leaves the sky behind
she will find herself
blowing through the forest black as crows' eyes
glowing through the forest black as crows' eyes
blowing through the forest black as crows' eyes
