lyrics

Be still, oh wounded heart, be still, wounded earth.
You part your wounded waterways like hair cascading on your pillow in the morning.
Crack open wide the sun, paint your face yellow with its yolk.
The jokes on us as heat creeps down our arms, pools in our elbows.

Roll up the night sky, replace the stars with your fire eyes.
Roll up the night sky, hang the moon in your bedroom.
Hang the moon in your bedroom.

This is a love song for the refugee,
Working nights to make it in your brand new country.
You left your stories seeping in the soil,
As your toiled with the barnyards and the cherry trees.
She told me baby, hang your worries out to dry,
I've been on this line now, for so long now, I'm just a bird on a wire.

Roll up the family history, soak it in brine.
Roll up the family history, leave it out to dry.

Roll up the night sky, replace the stars with your fire eyes.
Roll up the night sky, hang the moon in your bedroom.
Hang the moon in your bedroom.
