Mother Mary of the valley
Send me a saint cause I need him so badly
From the forest, to the prairie
I walk alone with the burdens I carry

She was the fairest of ten thousand
But I lost her high in the mountains
Now I’m searching for that fountain
So I can buy a little time while I’m waiting

I heard a voice in the whirlwind
You learned your lesson but you never should have came here
It carried me on through the black hills
And showed me the way to the white fields

I lied awake in the pasture
Safe and sound from disaster
And when my heart beats faster
I'm holding on like there's something coming after

The storm in me that's turning
To bury what I've broken
And hold me underwater

Should I blame my mistakes?
Burn down the bed I’ve made?

Throwing stones since the river turned away
Son of wilderness to find the narrow gate
‘Cause where we’re going will never be safe
But there’s nothing left for me here if I stay

Mother Mary
Come and find me
It's getting late and it's darker than it should be...
