Verse 1:
Share this night
As the maple leaves ignite
And the stars reflect the fires of our hearts

And I have tried
To see God in the spires
Of tall mountains in the skies above me

In the moon's empty beams, take flight
On the path laid before me my past fades out of sight
In a forest, out a tree
Let the water strip it clean
As the tide will flood the streets and set me free

Verse 2:
And share this sleep
With the phantoms of the deep
And with the darkness that creeps before dawn

And I have died
And I've swallowed my pride
Now I'm dressed to the nines with a smile

In the haunted river stones, take me
If I'm gone come tomorrow, I follow my feet
To the forest in my dreams
Let the water wash me clean
Let it rise up to the leaves and cover me
