lyrics

In the belly of December night
with mountain edges dusted white
the valley echoed soft and low
the echoes of the bitter cold
On a piñon tree we hung all our clothes
The arroyo both beckoned and begged us to go
A glimmering ribbon, a threatening rope
But you warmed me like sweet wood smoke

We plunged, plunged on in

Beneath the surface I met you again
Like the first time It stole every breath
Pins and needles filled my lungs
made a break for the bank and started to run
My eyelashes froze into sleek silver leaves
The snow it fell so heavy on me
but oh to love so restlessly
In the cold beneath a piñon tree

We plunged, plunged on in

My fingertips were cigarettes
All red and raw
An ice blue kiss, my frosty lips
your quivering jaw
But your night time gaze it gave me shape
and the winter paused
for my heart ablaze like ghost ranch days
in the desert sun

When I'm warm and dry in summer
That haunting chill still finds me sweet
but time it just keeps wandering
Like the arroyo through the trees
I knew too soon we would split
muddy delta would remain
We could go on wandering our quiet isolated ways

Maybe someday in the ocean
two desperate mouths will meet again
and we can stop our wandering
and just drift along instead
