"Newfallen" as written by and Aaron Thomas Gerber....
After the raining, the shadow of brightness.
Under the cedar, where it's still dry.
I can't talk about small things
when there's something so big.
I won't lean in to listen when I see you with him.
Pine needles on the ground are like clothing,
hastily removed.
Before making love.
Steady yourself at morning,
it's a better way than waking up,
cauterized by the cold air.
It's wonderful to have no say, to feel this bad.
And oh how fun, that we get to be alive,
at the same time.
And oh how fun, that we get to be alive,
at the same time.
How we get to be alive
(at the same time)
How we get to be alive
(at the same time)

Hollow like dune grass,
but holding up hill sides.
I'll be the weak thing that stops your eroding.
If you won't make it easier, I'll try to behave.
I'll be mean as a hammer, driving a nail.
Gonna make like a pine tree,
leave my coat on me.
For my staying here,
between you and the rain.
Sorry I can't lie nearer,
I can only fall asleep alone.
I like having a whole day,
nothing to get done,
no-one, to make me worry.
And oh how fun, that we get to be alive,
at the same time.
And oh how fun, that we get to be alive,
at the same time.
How we get to be alive
(at the same time)
How we get to be alive
(at the same time)
How we get to be alive.
