lyrics

The moss is damp with the morning dew
I fell asleep to coyote's howl
The grass is trampled and the poppies few
I still hear the heart broken owl
Theres something different with the morning air
Differents bad and it's always strange
If you were here I know that we would share
I count on you to understand my pain
I still don't know the reasons why
I blame myself for being weak
I feel like you didn't even try
Come back to me so that we can speak

Stay low so they wont find you
Breathe slow they're right behind you
Don't grow the sun can't shine through
Let's not come this way again

Stay low so they wont find you
Breathe slow they're right behind you
Don't grow the sun can't shine through
Let's not come this way again

A week has passed now and as I wake
I stretch my paws and my stomach roars
My leg is tattered I can feel the breaks
I need your help I'm on the floor
It broke your heart when rabbit took our pups
The snow is coming I'll need to go
If I don't then I'll be stuck
And I fear you'll be on your own
I hear the howls echo off the rocks
Cover my ears and I close my eyes
In the morning I will start to walk
I will find you, I hope your alive

Stay low so they wont find you
Breathe slow they're right behind you
Don't grow the sun can't shine through
Let's not come this way again

Stay low so they wont find you
Breathe slow they're right behind you
Don't grow the sun can't shine through
Let's not come this way again

A month has passed and the snow has come
My bodies cold and the valleys dim
I lay here with our only son
He's grown so much since you've seen him
He brought me food and he fixed my leg
Every night we sing to the moon
He said he found you and your ok
And that you will be here soon
In the morning you were standing there
With our daughter's paw on your paw
You said you loved me in the morning air
That's the story I leave on the wall

Stay low so they wont find you
Breathe slow they're right behind you
Don't grow the sun can't shine through
Let's not come this way again

Stay low so they wont find you
Breathe slow they're right behind you
Don't grow the sun can't shine through
Let's not come this way again
