Old fiery home
Buried under the snow
I’m covered again
By the voice of a friend

O your tides have now come
To wash up my blood
That’s dried in the sun
O I’m afraid of this heart
I’m afraid of your ghost
I’m afraid of your love

Old watery realm
On a path for myself
I held up that blade
Over all of the waves

O your violent clouds
Are a wind in this house
Where your flames have gone out
O I’m afraid of this heart
I’m afraid of your ghost
I’m afraid of your love.
