Why don't we go slow below the valley clouds
Our edges worn round and sacred now
All in time, all promises were not the same
We left flowers in the field and our tears were plain

Bend to the wind
It'll baptize your skin until your music is tender
Tender as trees
For the truth we believed it's the wind we remember

We were overcome
Spinning in the wheels
Hitting bottom in the wellspring mud
Crying to the cold until we felt the sun
Home was up a hill but our weary legs could run
When we closed our eyes
We could see the serpent and the savior
Laying side by side
Heaven was a corner where we tried to hide
Our running would be long
And our river would be wild

Feel this flag, let's ring another freedom bell
Our backs were to the sound but its sermon held
All things wild draw cups until the water's cold
Our memories are Christ and our hearts are clothes

Bend to the wind
It'll baptize our skin until our music is tender
Tender as trees
For the tears when we leave, it's the wind we'll remember

We'll be overcome
Spinning in the wheels
Hitting bottom in the wellspring mud
Crying to the cold until we feel the sun
Home is up a hill where our weary legs will run
When we close our eyes
See the serpent and her favorite savior
Laying side by side
Every heaven only you and I can find
Our running will be long
And our river will be wild, wild

Bells come back
We'll name a star we know all night
What valley is our claim when our coin is sky
