lyrics

The chase is on
My heart the hungry fox
He woke from his bed of red
Feathers fallen to the earth

Oh hungry fox
Running wild in the air
Oh you won’t apologize
for seeking what you want

But why is it you only want the shadows?
The ghostly ones who refuse to feel your love?
Even if you caught them, they would only fade away
Into nothing.

There’s a girl
Somebody I used to know
But I watched her die
in a dream I had last night

When she fell
The side of the building collapsed
And I heard an echo so terrible
Like a bear trap had been snapped

And I heard her mother calling from the crowd
And I heard her sister crying for a peaceful word
And I felt myself in pieces like a mirror on the floor
completely useless.

You, my dear, were always
So far away from everyone
Who loved you,
So how could I expect

To ever get close
To you, my dear,
Your face is a lullaby
For all my sleepless nights

And my hungry heart is still collecting feathers
From the dreaming place where you let so many fall
And the fox in me is still building a red nest of bloody down
You’re always welcome, You’re always welcome,
You’re always welcome.
