lyrics

Tell me how did you wash
Your tracks away?
Your heart ran so fast
You wouldn't hear a thing
Oh I remember the creek and the train
I swear I can still feel the deep cuts and shame
But here comes the rain, here comes the rain
To pour over me
And wash all my stains

But the memories come and leave just as they please
And all those nights still haunt me when I see you in my dreams
I know that I should let go of these things
But I'm just a child who's learning how
And I won't worry and I won't care
I'll fight and I'll grow and I'll reach for the Son
No, I won't worry and I won't care,
I'll fight and I'll grow
no, I don't need to know
who she is

How will I know?
With a heart like the shore the tide comes and it goes
When will I learn
To burn your old ghost and watch the ashes float away?

But the memories come and leave just as they please
And all those nights still haunt me when I see you in my dreams
I know that I should let go of these things
But I'm just a child who's learning how
And I won't worry and I won't care
I'll fight and I'll grow and I'll reach for the Son
No, I won't worry and I won't care,
I'll fight and I'll grow
no, I don't need to know
who she is

As beautiful as you are I can take it
I'll be patient, I'll be patient

Fields in her eyes
Flowers in her hair
Things like this take time
But I'm young I could wait for love

Yeah, I'm young I could wait for love
