lyrics

When leaves have covered the ground
And dark has fallen around
Winds that would wither and chill
Bleed out in the emptying hills

When trees have lost all their blooms
And snow has covered your tomb
I go out walking till I
Can shake all the blue from the sky

The ridge lines and highways
All point the same way
Down to the valley below
But high on the hillside
I'll stand and reside
Until I have somewhere to go

I will remember that you
Were always faithful and true
If you forget all the times
That I was cruel and unkind

The ridge lines and highways
All point the same way
Down to the valley below
But high on the hillside
I'll stand and reside
Until I have somewhere to go

The songs that the wind moans
Are whispered in low tones
And say what we already know
The way that the world groans
From green shoots to old bones
But I thought that you'd make it slow
