lyrics

My world
Only a dying bird
Only the finch that came

So small
Fit in my mittened palm
Fit like a dying flame

And even the beaver was cold

My heart
Peeling like birch bark
Laid like a rug for death

With gold plates
And gifts for those passed away
Gifts like a bird's last breath

And even a spirit gets bored

You and I
we're only a fishing line
Cast in a flowing stream

If I
Can hold a bird to die
Why wouldn't the world hold me?

And even a dreamer grows old
And even a beaver gets cold
And even a dreamer grows whole.
