lyrics

Who knew?

The mysteries used to ride on the breeze 'til
Like the leaves they fall, fall, fall to the earth
What we do in the woods couldn't be understood
Not by a longshot, baby, I wish that you could

Don't blow away, away, away
Catch the breeze and it all collapses down the same

But who knew?

With this moon we're entombed some are waiting,
Some are convinced of the truth
Strip this bird of both her wings
On a platter for the adder hear it sing,
Or do you only hear a hiss and then a sting?

Don't blow away, away, away
Catch the breeze and it all collapses down the same
The branches bear the weight of what we're doing here.

But who knew where the wind fell,
Which songs are screaming through the wildwood?
And who knew in the clearing,
Which rhythms are banging through the rocks and the roots?
Where do the mysteries go in the light?
Why do you shiver when we kiss in the night?

Who knew?
Who knew what it meant to be a mystery?
The branches bear the weight of what we're doing here.

Who knew?
