I ride over rivers and mountains
Trees are covered in blossoms and mosses
To deliver my wilted body to your door
I’m weighing my gains and losses

You welcome me with the look of a madman
I lose myself in your pandemonium

The bed next to the railroad shakes all night
I am systematically giving up the fight

The one who’s gone beyond and back
Has taught me to let go
Caught up in your violent thunderstorm
A branch in your stream, pulled to and fro

Black birds line the path
I ride home through rain and snow
It’s always the crows who watch
Each lover come and go

The bed next to the railroad shook all night
For those moments I’d given up the fight

You are sweet, with the look of a madman
I love myself when I can’t chase equilibrium
Still the crows watch as I run and run away
I will return when the storm pulls me in again


from The Fires I Started, released August 16, 2012
