I must’ve been fooled when you touched my heart
Skies were red and blazing
I heard a moan in the elms above
And I knew the day was ending

I knew you’d seen your happiest day
When the next morn the birds were singing
We felt the same cold from the earth

It took the moon to hold the tide
And set our hearts a spinning
You’d wait for dark never come again

I’ll turn my back to the calling sun
If you’ll rise and meet me
I’ll walk the road I took from you
Oh, stay a while and the red sky is blazing

Touch my heart and feel my burning
For the day you left
For the arms above

To me, those birds are singing
