lyrics

Sleeping Giant

Sleeping Giant I won’t wake you
Walking through your bed
Will the winter let her guard down
Streams wait to be fed

Blanket me with furs you trapped
That time that you went deep
Took everything you owned
And laid it down like offerings

Scarcity is more than plenty
More than we both know
I won’t be there when you wake up
I will let you go

I will place tobacco
Near the skin behind your ear
Where rivers waters wore you bare
From gentle touch for years

Sleeping Giant I won’t wake you
Walking through your bed
Will the winter let her guard down
Streams wait to be fed
