"The Woods" as written by and Elena Veronica Tonra....
I asked Saint Christopher
To find your sister
And she ran out in the woods
And she ran out in the woods

Oh, it was certain then
And we were trying to stop the winter
Killing all it could
Killing all it could

And I pray a lot for you
And I look out for you

We are what we are
Don't need no excuses
For the scars
From our mothers

And we know what we know
'Cause we're made of all the little bones
Of our fathers

And I pray a lot for you
And I look out for you

And I pray a lot for you
And I look out for you

I asked Saint Christopher
To find your sister
She ran out in the woods
'Cause she ran out in the woods

    General CommentSt Christopher is the saint of protection during travel. Ran out in the woods means they are in danger (if they are not out of the woods yet, there is still an element of danger).

    This person in danger is doing something or hiding from their childhood. Perhaps into drugs and alcohol and/or abusive relationships or ran away from home.

    The person singing is missing them and wants them to know they accept them.

    Guess it's a shorter version of the other two, haha!

    I love this song. It has helped me during a time when my sister almost died. I just wanted her to get out of the woods so to speak...
