The Clearing

Album: released as a single (2020)
  • Just one drop will bring the whole house down
    God only knows, you can't stop the sound
    Of the outside coming inside
    Can't un-hear it once it's said out loud

    And you shoulda known better
    you shoulda known better
    you shoulda known better
    you shoulda known better by now

    After the fires went out
    That's when the rain came
    Whatever we're gonna be now, love
    We gotta build it in the clearing

    Just one spark'll take the whole town out
    God only knows, you can't stop us now
    Can't un-say it once you've drawn the crowd

    And we shoulda known better
    we shoulda known better
    we shoulda known better
    we shoulda known better by now

    After the fires went out
    That's when the rain came
    Whatever we're gonna be now, love
    We gotta build it in the clearing

    And I know it's my privilege
    And I know it's my burden
    To be burned by the sleeping
    And to beg for forgiveness

    After the fires went out
    That's when the rain came
    Whatever we're gonna be now, love
    We gotta build it in the clearing
