stay a little while
there's an arrow
tucked into my spine
walk with me awhile
like an indian trailing
my tail feathers
through dry rivers and plains
be my time friend
who covers back and front
a shelter from the sun
a soothing hand in the twilight
my ignition, my permission to let go...
let go... and just go

I'm afraid to admit all the things I regret
now it's said
but the night came too soon and the day's running late
it's hard to change, the indian, that dwells, inside, this chest

with furrows in your brow
you're still a rainbow
crawling up the sky
with droplets in your eye
you're still sure of your pathways
so I'll sway in your wash

I'm afraid to admit all the things I regret
now it's said
though the picture that passes our window has changed
it's hard to change, the indian, that dwells, inside, this chest
