Whenever she's awake
She climbs a hill,
And crosses a dark trail
And there she finds the fox
In a wooded glade.
She lies by a rock and she's red.
She smells of violets and vetiver
She flicks her ears,
As I whisper...

I've grown a handsome tall tree, mother
And I want to bear a fruit, for you.
And I have carried your fears and your hopes, father
They're so heavy on my back, oh you should know.
Catch some sleep.

I want to find the eagles nest, oh take me with you.
And I've been waiting a lifetime for this, and I am ready.
Just believe me, I've been up all night, they call me crazy.
But I want to see what the sky looks like from your view.

But I saw your face carved in clay, and I saw (she saw)
It outlined against a purple sky,
It goes loud and deep in me, loud and deep.
My home is on that cliff.

I want to find the eagles nest, oh take me with you.
And I've been waiting a lifetime for this, and I am ready.
Forever wanderer, I wandered all my life, they never knew me.
I want to what the sky looks like from your view.

I've grown a handsome tall tree, mother
And I want to bear a fruit, for you.
And I have carried your fears and your hopes, father
I'll conquer them, for me and you.

I've grown a handsome tall tree, ooooohh
And I want to bear a fruit, for you.
And I have carried your fears and your hopes, father
I will conquer them, for me and you.
