Peel back my winterskin, hang me out to dry in the wind.
It's summertime.
Peel back the lids of my eyes, peel back the clouds from the sky.

It's summertime.

It would be beautiful if you were here.
It would be beautiful if you were here.

The desert is empty as it seems, life is meaningless as dreams
without you.

So build a shrine out of my bones, bleached whiter than these stones,
so your heart won't be alone when you finally come home.
