lyrics

The ice is cracking
The ice is cracking
The river widens
Flows on in silence
And the snow is finally gone

Blackbirds laughing
Geese returning
Beech trees shaking
Water swirling
As everything that’s melted starts to run

I’ve been by myself for much too long
And I know I’ve done nothing wrong
I’ve protected myself from every angle
Now my heart starts to untangle
I take down my guard
And I am yours

It’s never dry here
The future’s not clear
I’ll always return here
This land is so dear
The forest and the valleys call me home

People smile here
It feels good to lie here
I’ve built my life here
I’ll probably die here
And join the bones of those who’ve come before

I’ve been by myself for much too long
And I know I’ve done nothing wrong
I’ve protected myself from every angle
Now my heart starts to untangle
I take down my guard
And I am yours
