lyrics

How small am I?
I stand here small beneath a cold new mountain
making wishes,
making prayers
on the floating, ghostly seeds
of the pink-hot fireweed.
Making wishes, making prayers.

I tremble like an aspen,
I burn like a red pine,
I weep like a willow,
and I sleep like the standing ghost of a tree.

My heart is searching
'cause there's holes in all the stories that I know.

I tremble like an aspen,
I burn like a red pine,
I weep like a willow,
and I sleep like the standing ghost of a tree.

How small am I?
