What the Land Will Tell You

lyrics

Snow dusts the hill there’s frost on the grass
Mergansers diving without a gasp
There’s so much we all can say
But listen harder
To what the land will tell you
What the land will tell you

River valley where the bears did roam
Pronghorn hoof prints lead to the unknown
Sage as far as the eye can see
Will you believe?
What the land will tell you
What the land will tell you

Get the sleep out of your eye
Might be we all need to cry
Once we listen
To what the land will tell you

Winter has broken onto the day
It’s cold now but we’ll find our way
Just a trace left of who used to call this home
You thing you're first but you’ll never be alone
If you listen
To what the land will tell you
What the land will tell you
