Now you got me hanging on every word
There’s flames in the kitchen and all of my body hurts
Aunt Lucy’s in her nightdress
She’s holding my hand in the dark

And I can see my ghost
He was always close
While the fires burn through what was once virgin snow
And my fields they weep
And all my cattle grieve
While these rivers flow far from me

It’s been two months now since the fire took my hometown
There’s shoots on the trees but everybody’s camping out
Cousin David didn’t make it but he did us proud

And I’ll find my place
Amid the tattoos and lace
While the sun burns through a new kind of truth
And my fears are so tall
I dream of waterfalls
While my body grinds on and on
