The Chase

lyrics

Death stares at me
Peers from the pines
Birds silence beaks
Deer run from the creek

Im in a clear
Under the sun
Nowhere to go
Nowhere to run

Take a deep breath
Dig my hooves in the dirt
Now I can see
Death stares at me

She lays in the grass
She lays fast and proud
I feel so slow
And she pounces out

She runs like the wind
Four steps at a time
She is closing in
And I look down
I have not took a step
I'm moving slow
I have to go
Before I die, Before I die
I have to go before I die

My first step was quick
I'm faster than I think
Here comes the creek
I leap through with two leaps
And she jumped over the whole thing
Her hungers strong and my will is weak
My will is weak, my will is weak
Her hungers strong and my will is weak

And I see a fox hiding in a hole
And i see the owl soaring in the breeze
And why wont the bear come out of his cave
And I see my faun staring down at me
And I'm on my own nowhere to run
There goes the moon, here comes the sun
Then I reached the cliff, that over looks the lake
I can either jump, or turn around and wait
I will wait
I will turn around, I will turn around and wait

And she was only steps behind
My plans to move but do I have time
She was in the air
And I could smell her breath
I moved aside she fell to her death
