a light in the dark split through the trees
appearing in part a legend to see
born in the dirt nursed in the dawn
lying with wolves an american fawn
she wanted all that her brain would behold
gardens of garland diamonds and gold
she wanted all that her guts could digest
taking what’s worse and leaving what’s best
but i still say

oh my white fawn i’m the wild one i’ll find you
out of the zoo i’m feasting on you one last time
oh my sparrow my heart so narrow for you only
i could love you i could love you one last time

the day she ran away everybody knew
they said “gone is the legend” but the legend just grew
out in the world she’s catching drops of rain
inside a hive of bees she’s guarding honey with stings
if i’d only obeyed my own advice
i would’ve never gone to her twice
but if i’d obeyed then i’d never have seen
her light in the dark that was splitting through the trees

oh my white fawn it’s me the wild one i’ll find you
out of the zoo i’m feasting on you one last time
oh my sparrow my heart so narrow for you only
i could love you i could love you for all time
