Seven Falls

Album: The Lookout (2018)
  • Raised under rays of gold
    And under sapphire skies
    Out in the sandy loam
    I found a way to make you cry
    How can a child of the sun be so cold?

    Up past the Seven Falls
    Beyond the moody peak
    I dove into the lake and called
    An icy command for you to join me
    How can a child of the sun be so cold?

    So cold
    Like a planet with no sun floats in the black
    I'm old now
    And I try to be kind but still sometimes
    I'm as cold as that

    Catamount, Ivywild
    Many moons I've roamed
    Dusty trails of summer
    And my heart consumed with snow
    How can a child of the sun be so cold?

    So cold
    Like a caveman they found on the frozen flats
    I'm old now
    And I try to be kind but still sometimes
    I'm as cold as that Writer/s: Laura Veirs
