lyrics

Long day in the fields
Collecting pieces of charred hearts
There's too much wind in the stands
For tracing lines between your scars

And if I only tried
To find a way around the whys and around the hows
Like if I really tried
If I really tried

Long day in the fields
Killing snakes amongst the weeds
Scales on skin like diamond hearts
I'll find a way to open up

And if I only tried
To find a way around the whys and around the hows
Like if I really tried
I'll find a way to open up

Oh, if I opened up someday
And found my way back down

Long day in the fields
But we're close to summer's end
Listen all you dead-end souls
What you need's around this bend

And if I only tried
To find a way around the whys and around the hows
Like if I really tried
I'll find a way to open up, to open up

Oh, if I opened up someday
I'd find my way back down
Oh, I'd find my way back down
