lyrics

Prairie sky, don't look at me that way
Take me under your wide wings of mercy
Singing your light, please don't curse me
Heaven only knows I've gone astray

Like crooked houses sink into
This land that swallowed oceans
Distant memories fade into this day
Prairie sky don't let me slip away
Prairie sky don't look at me that way

And prairie sky remind me I am small
Take me anyways to curves beyond this world that I'm slipping on
Light the days and guide me to that thinly-drawn horizon with your call
Prairie sky remind me I've seen nothing at all
Prairie sky remind me I am small.

But I see green grass growing in the fields up ahead
Over my eyes
Over my eyes
I see everything that's getting bigger
Lifting up the city to the sky

And prairie sky, please fill me full of hope
Stretch and colour in your perfect light the pages of imagination
Press and fold them over like the pages of emancipated birds that sing could morning to the sun

Like painted walls that crack and break the silence under pressure
Distant memories linger in the cold
Prairie sky remind me I can never be to old
Prairie sky remind me I am bold

And I see green grass growing in the fields up ahead
Over my eyes
Over my eyes
I see everything that's getting bigger
Lifiting up the city to the sky
