Like the first track, this was from the background concept for a character in a role-playing game.


We fled to the snow--for the house was a pyre...
Our two hearts were shattered like stones in a fire
Time has seen mended what tragedy marred,
But never quite perfect--but never unscarred.

When the wind changes we still feel the breaks
The hurt that was dozing rolls over, and wakes
The sun leaves the meadow, the geese leave the lakes--
When the wind changes, it aches.

Out on the hill there's a place I would go
Where ash feeds the soil and wildflowers grow.
I'd follow behind you and creep up to stand
My head on your shoulder, my hand in your hand.

First fruits of harvest are sweet in my mouth
We've love; we have laughter; the wind's in the south
But sorrow is waiting, by autumn concealed,
As rain makes uneasy a bone long since healed.
