the ground’s on fire
the ground’s on fire
and so are you
god left you here, too

you could call for rain
you could call for rain
your new moguls: trees
some full
some lonely
both help you think

i’m sorry

and you were right
it was okay
to be scared

    Song MeaningIt's a song about Kristin's unlikely best friend in college, the old movie star Betty Hutton (AKA Elizabeth June Thornburg), written after she had heard of her death.

    Fascinating stories of their friendship can be found in Kristin's memoir Rat Girl (AKA Paradoxical Undressing in the UK and elsewhere)
