lyrics

you appeared from the edge of a wood
as a black-haired, brown-skinned doe-eyed little girl
right then and there i swore i'd never hurt another
never take aim at another daughter's mother

the wind moved like a breath between the leaves
every breath i took hung upon the breeze
like a lost cloud, forgotten and tossed out
vanished in the air and never talked about

if i ever see you again
i'll be sure to let my courage win
walk up to you, talk softly to you
we can slip away like two caribou

and leave it all behind
disappear into the wilderness
lost amongst the pines and the wild watercress
and leave it all behind

well not a day goes by
when i don't think about when you and i
stood toe to toe, fifty yards apart
held together by some invisible arc

i could feel you tremble beneath your skin
you didn't know if you would lose or if you'd win
i can't help but grieve for everything i've lost
still gathering the pieces of everything i've tossed

if i ever see you again
i'll be sure to let my courage win
walk up to you, talk softly to you
we can slip away like two caribou

and leave it all behind
disappear into the wilderness
lost amongst the pines and the wild watercress
leave it all behind

hold me now and hold me tight
this love's a time travel into the night
a metamorphosis, transformed and joyous
we can run away where no one will bother us

and leave it all behind
disappear into the wilderness
lost amongst the pines and the wild watercress
leave it all behind
