lyrics

Your wedding dress still fresh in the closet,
boxes left unpacked.
Cottage far from the god of the west,
far off the route we mapped.
Toss the shovels and the crates in the my truck-
we drive to town at sunrise.
Farmer's market in that parking lot-
cabbage, grapes, and rice.

Wait- I've never been near anyone in this place.
I never touched anyone.
Wait- I've never been near anyone in this place.
I never touched anyone but there's something so familiar
as the mountains grow beneath our feet.

Raking piles of leaves in the yard,
Church service at dark.
Take a walk back from where we came-
I left my hat in the park.
You look like a shaman in the green sweater,
bare feet on the dash.
Distance slowly diminishes now,
wood in the hearth and ash.

Then you turn away as the fire starts to burn.
I put my hand on your arm and I try to calm the nerves.
"Everyone feels like this- this is nothing to be alarmed of."
But you say, "No one's ever felt like this,
we are the first ones on the Earth."

Wait- I've never been near anyone in this place.
I never touched anyone.
Wait- I've never been near anyone in this place.
I never touched anyone but there's something so familiar
as the mountains grow beneath our feet.
