I was born beneath the wide western sky
I was blessed in the clear cold stream
I was loved in the roots and the branches
Reaching up for you and reaching down for me

I’m giving up the things that keep me from you
I’m taking off my skin my flesh and bone
I throw myself into the wild places
I’m giving up on ever finding home

I’m looking in and I’m looking down
There’re so many ways to give yourself away
What if we could get drunk on light?
What if we could get high on sound?

Love will have its way with you
As sure as these rivers turn mountains to sand
And the fires will forge a looking glass
To see at the end back to where we began
