Little brother of mine
Little sister so kind
Summer is falling away

The days will grow darker still
And we will shine if it is our will
Even as blue skies turn to grey

Oh . . . oh . . .

You've shown me the golden seeds
Of a love that binds the moon and sea
Gotta find my way back home

These are the feathers that I now hold
The things you gave and showed and told
They're all I have now that you have flown

Feathers will fall with the snow
Some will stay and some will go
They will be as black as black can go
Like the children of the night sky
And the crow

We may wander east or west
Or into the serpent's nest
But the ribbons remain

The strings we tied to each other's bones
Will always guide us home
No matter how far we stray

Oh . . . oh . . .
Oh . . . oh . . .
