lyrics

“You who live outside of life,
you’re not alone, not yet”

In the barn, the ghost, the girl
When I came home from school
She sat upon the hayloft stairs
In a dress of layered tulle

Half-hidden from the shadows
Her body turned away
Her little gloves, pale and clenched
Over her little face

It was as if she took my hand
It was as if she knew
The earth held only part of her
And I should know it too

I’d seen the man out in the field
Immersed in dancing flames
A barn had once burned down out there
Long before we came

The land stretched wide beyond the house
Who knows what lay beneath
What other men were lying there
And would show themselves to me

It was as if he took my hand
It was as if he knew
The earth held only part of him
And I should know it too

It was as if they caught my ear
It was as if their breath
Would say, would sing
The dance of life continues after death
