lyrics

the braid-house unwound
he said it all works out in the end
heard the windows shatter
out came Oliver Glen
he’s a true sharp shooter
quick with the sling and the stone
he’s hurled the stars over our heads
ain’t it fine how this night sky has glown?

up in the air and right through the shutters
letting the breeze weave through our sleeping town
nothing to fear, run wide and take cover
we won’t stop till the moon is down

like a prairie candle
he threw up the sun full of fire
that day in Alberta
we never felt so alive
it was the middle of summer
the streets sizzled in the rain
he turned to me, said “When you see this
you’ll never miss that life again.”

up in the air and right through the shutters
letting the breeze move in, touch the people there
Oliver Glen with the grin of a lover
he won’t stop till we breathe air

breathe, so breathe
down in the cage we bloom
the stars are holes
letting the air come in the room
