lyrics

They skated down the river, cattails lit on fire
Speaking other languages he’d never heard before
Until he was older, tormented by desire
He learned the names and origins of the men who held the fire

He knew less about the country that his old soul was born in
Then the labourers who came here looking to survive
‘Til he moved to Toronto, found a girl who loved him
She told him about the spirits buried in January snow

And if your spirit is buried in January snow
Find a merchant at market to sell you
Sage, rosemary and thyme
We all want more time

Loggers, mills and dynamite, tanneries insult
The particles inside your nose will denigrate your art
And in the forest of your lovers, love is won and lost
Carried on the currents of the rivers you have crossed

And his body was buried in January snow
For his reasons they killed him for treason
And he didn’t get more time
We all want more time
