open up the door and let the sound come in
I can hear the owls and the dogs again
they sing and they shout when the moon is out

open up the window and let the storm come in
I need to feel the water on my skin
the crops need help to grow and this rain's gonna make it so

I can see the setting sun
I know my days are done
let it be said that I've got no regrets, and I've made good on what I owe
let it be known that this place was not my home, this place was not my home
