In the morning when it's dark
The geese know better
Take their wings to where we're not
And maybe we should know
And maybe we should go

So wrap your fingers, wrap them long
Long and thin around our arms
Wrap our throats in winter scarves
Drown our voices in your song
Clear our eyes up with your chill
Freeze our breath, parading, still
Knock our doors down with your fists
Knock our doors down, come on in

In the evening when it's dark
Afternoon has taken its shadows home to where we're not
And maybe we should know
And maybe we should go
