lyrics

one day I'll bear your last name
and I'll write it after mine

photograph the children
matching sweaters in a line

the mountain air will rid you of
the broken glass collecting in your spine

don't you see this humble life with me
would be just fine?

we shed our shoes deciduously
for boots warm enough to brave the snow

walk slow with your arms around me
no darkness follows down this path

the kindling that we found is burning
our children softly wakened by the sound

and while the world is quickly turning
our little house stays firmly in the ground


you don't know me yet
i don't know you yet
me finding you here
is my daunting task
this city's too fast
just watching my breath

don't you see this humble life with me would be just fine?
spend your days with me amongst the pine

when I find you
i will take you far away
when I find you
i will take you far away
when I find you
i will take you far away
when I find you
i will take you far away
when I find you
i will take you far away
when I find you
i will take you far away
when I find you
