You are braver and stronger than me
You throw back the door see wolf prints in the snow, say
The free have been here and gone
Then you step aside smiling and watch me stride into the storm

I’m walking ‘til I’m home
Stead, though tired I am not alone

We choose to be alone when it seems we’re most weak
When the tame run to save they’ll find wolves sleeping warming our
Feet, speak to ground, lead to heart
Now you hold me so close ‘cos you know what I’ve seen in the dark

I’m walking ‘til I’m home
Stead, though tired I am not alone

Brew tea on the back porch, I don’t need more than this
Our garden in spring and the birds know your name on my
Lips, sing your storm a lullaby
Now there’s nothing to do so I lay down and kiss you goodnight
