Every once in the months
My sun sets fire to my feeling
I'm on the path near the lake
And it's stopping my breathing
but it's still not a surprise

It's in my chest
It's in my ribs
It's not my heart
It's my grieving
But it's not sad
It's more of a longing
That comes for the season
That I'm in
And I always wonder just where it's been

And when I die
I hope my soul doesn't go on and fly
I hope it just stays right here
Looking up into the sky
Cause I know where I'm gonna die

For a beautiful lover in the morning
And once in the evening
I see the kids in the water
Full of being
And then I will smile
And the winter months only last for a while

Looking up at the grey
But I wouldn't ever have to worry 'bout freezing
Just sit and ponder
Never have to think about reason
I'd be just somebody's memory

But how different is it
When you're just walking down the street
You're always in a placce that you're not
You're inside of your loved ones
I'm just someone's friend
I still wake up every day
And don't see an end

The stillness kills me
With a filledness that brings us to staring
Out far beyond the shore
The fire's brweing and glaring
On the mirror on the lake

And in the hold there's black, there's red,
Orange and with the blue
Never mind the breeze, never mind the miracles,
I got me and I got you
I know that this is my fate

And if I was God
This isn't even something I could create
(x3)

And when I die
I hope my soul doesn't go on and fly
I hope it just stays right here
Looking up into the sky
Cause I know where I'm gonna die

When the Lord comes down
To take me back to the sky
When the Lord comes down
To bring us back to the sky
When the Lord comes down
I'll look Him straight in the eye
I'll look Him straight in the eye
