The Heron and the Fox

This song is by Little Scream and appears on the album The Golden Record (2011).

Stranded in a snowstorm in a town that you forgot
I take advantage of a warm car and I reassess my lot
So many years I have given up and now my youth seems shot
I take my place among the truckers and I show 'em what I've got.

I told the stripper at the bar that the shots we got were magic,
'Make a wish and they'll come true'...
As she smiled her golden tooth glinted in the light,
And I wonder what she wished for. I just wished for you.

They say everything is possible... but I know that it's not true.
Especially not when it comes to you

Dreamy colors gold and red, dreamy colors run right through
Oh, Caroline as my witness, I never meant to cause you pain...
And sweet sweet forgiveness; you can go back, but it's never the same.

Oh I don't know who I am and I don't know what I'll be
Feels like I'm strounded in an ocean of grave uncertainty
Wish I could conjure up the shoots and ladders to bring me back
To the place before I ran away and found... I'd lost my track.

Oh that magic curtained canyon where lovers dreams can lie
Is like a drive in movie screen that is pressed against the sky.
All those pictures float there happy just for a little while
Before they're swallowed up in the vastness of... the open night.

Dreamy colors gold and red, dreamy colors run right through
Oh, Caroline as my witness, I never meant to cause you pain...
And sweet sweet forgiveness; you can go back, but it's never the same.

Oh I'll give you all the colors that are left here in my box,
If you would draw a picture into which we could both drop.
And you would be the heron and I would be the fox,
And you would fly above me... Hoorah!
