  • In the spring we made a boat
    Out of feathers, out of bones.
    We set fire to our homes,
    Walking barefoot in the snow.

    Distant rhythm of the drum
    As we drifted towards the storm.
    Baby lion lost his teeth,
    Now they're swimming in the sea.

    Troubled spirits on my chest
    Where they laid to rest.
    The birds all left my tall friend
    As your body hit the sand.
    Million stars up in the sky
    Formed a tigers eye
    That looked down on my face,
    Out of time and out of place.

    So hold on,
    Hold on to what we are,
    Hold on to your heart.

    Awaken by the sound
    Of a screaming owl.
    Chasing leafs in the wind,
    Going where we've never been.

    Said goodbye to you my friend,
    As the fire spread.
    All that's left are your bones
    That will soon sink like stones

    So hold on,
    Hold on to what we are,
    Hold on to your heart.

    So hold on,
    Hold on to your heart.
