Alberta - Indigo Girls

It seems like a long time,
But it's been no time
In the course of a lifetime
Since you're gone

The crack in the window
Is that how you got through?
Dogs howl, is that you?
The setting sun

You took a wild rose, from Alberta
Brought it East to press upon this yellow page
One lost day

Once by a coal mine
A terrible landslide
Crushed the hopes of the incline
Engraved their bones

As hard as I try
I just can't let it lie
The feeling you haven't quite made it home

You took a wild rose, from Alberta
Brought it East to press upon this yellow page
One lost day

Can't call it sorry
Can't call it sad
Maybe just the same as how a song can take it back
More like that

Heirlooms and stories
Pieces of jewelry
Snapshots of a revelry,
A lullaby

The journey out West
Full of secrets, I guess
Never since been addressed
The hurricane eye

You took a wild rose, from Alberta
Brought it east to press upon this yellow page
One lost day
