lyrics

There is a copse upon a hill
Five tall pine trees stand breathing
A boy i know goes walking there
In the early hours of a winter evening

He carries books that i know well
Says he spends his evenings reading there
Shakes his snowy boots off at the door
Teases needles from his yellow hair

Understand
I know the earth beneath feet
I know the birds in the cottonwoods
Watching him go down the track, ask
When will he be back?

He doesn’t tell me any secrets
He knows that i could know them if i wanted
He doesn’t talk about the icy river
The fish hiding in the reeds within it

I could know where he goes if I wanted to
When will he tell me?
I could know where he goes if I wanted to
When will he tell me?
I could know what he does if I wanted to
When will he tell me?
I could know where he goes if i wanted to
If i wanted to
When will he tell me?
