My mother was a mountain
My father was the sea
She split him into fountains
He cleft her into valleys
My mother was an icy wind
My father buried in land
He wanted a warmer woman
She needed a better man

So where do you go when twenty years are gone?
Where do you go when you forgot the sums of yours fears is not all you are?

My mother was a dry year
My father nearly drowned
In whisky rum and beer
Trying to quiet his nomadic heart down
Cuz my mother was a boulder
And my father's desolate plain
And their love only grew colder
Cuz she loved him best in chains

So where do you go when twenty years are gone?
Where do you go when you forgot the sums of yours fears is not
Where do you go when twenty years are gone?
Where do you go when you forgot the sums of yours fears is not all you are?

My mother was cumulous nimbus
My father was the sky
She thundered him three children with lightening in her eyes
I inherited the heart of my father
And I got my mother's fight
I'll always be a wanderer so I'll never get left behind

So where do you go when twenty years are gone?
Where do you go when you forgot the sums of yours fears is not
Where do you go when twenty years are gone?
Where do you go when you forgot the sums of yours fears is not all you are?

My mother was a mountain
My father was the sea
She split him into fountains
He cleft her into valleys
