lyrics

I followed bridges down
To the center of a town.
I felt the shadows, like heavy blankets
Bearing down.

In them almost every night
I am bundled tight
Recalling the lights I saw
from incoming flights.

My feet were not made for this stone.

Though my grandma was a wolf
I was born hoofed,
And in my dreams I am a man,
Walking proud in buildings; shaking hands.

I've been a foolish animal!

I can barely see the treeline,
Or feel the safety in my home.
I've been looking for a springtime
In a year I'll never know.
Oh my deer! My dear,
I can feel it in my bones!
I know the moon is behind the street lights,
And the stars are brighter than the flames
Of the fire in streets tonight!

I ran down the tunnels
I was running from the city
Where I knew no one could find me
I was running towards the branches
I was running towards my home
I was running towards the witches who said,
"Grow your antlers son, and take horn!
Hoof to the forest, where you're always home!"

I know the moon is behind the streelights
And the stars shine brighter than the fire in the street tonight.

"Grow your antlers son, and take horn!
Hoof to the forest, where you're always home!"
