"Of Wilder Ones"

I've been
looking for adventure along
forgotten woods for buried gold
forgot the light
now walking cold
how could I then
confess to this

Didn't care
how far or long we came to this
young fired heart
of wilderness
imagination caught my eye
like looking back
like you were there
cradled earth moved by surprise
and honestly this vast unknown
ever seems repeating time
didn't want to stay or go

you've left me country-blind before
where shadows came and ran the course
well I didn't sign for this you hear
I want the love that you hold dear
on a field where foxes roam
tired by the sapphire coat
still pull the weight of some hero
defeated by unwanted thrill
now bright immortal lover sing
you pure the air I walk and breath
how honey sweet, the harvest sees
me to you and you to be

Some wait for you
to go out alone
but don't let this go
down like the rest

I came
heavy hearted held in hand
these weary eyes are all to show
I've been to places none like here
none of which to call my own
