about

This song was written while on tour in 2007 and recorded in May 2011 as a B side to Oceans. The song is about our Canadian landscape and love and how they can be beautiful and devastating simultaneously.

lyrics

silent said
way too much
summer's heat
burned a hole through our heart
season's turn
like pages in a book
chapter ends
and i'm waiting for the next

shift your weight off
float on in
this raft with no room left
thunder cries alongside
highway lines
saskatoon at midnight

contaminated fingertips
survivor for the fools at rest
tear this false ink
letter from my mailbox
better off as strangers
no illuminated eye stares

shift your weight off
float on in
this raft with no room left
thunder cries alongside
highway one
saskatoon at midnight
