lyrics

Do you remember the night you took me on down
To the creek bed on the far side of town
And you lifted your shirt, laid me down in the dirt
And showed me the world through your eyes
Yeah, you showed me the world through your eyes

Among cicadas and the whispering pines
You tangled your bony fingers up in mine
We got leaves in our hair and our breath in the air
And I heaved 'til my lungs they did burn
Yeah, I heaved 'til my lungs they did burn

And you said "I dreamed of you for all of my days
Yeah, I pictured you in so many ways
Something like this has lingered in my mind
You're the true north and I found you, good night."

And the next night you first showed me the stars
Sprawled out on the hood of my car
We talked through avendroth light, to the gloam, and the night
'Til the first one of them it did shine
'Til the first one of them it did shine

And I think of those nights every time
Your eyes cross the table they meet mine
And when you braid up your hair, I still see the leaves there
And I'll spin you 'til the record runs out
Yeah, I'll spin you 'til this record it runs out.

And now I dream of you all of my days
Yeah, I picture you in so many ways
Your face now it still lingers in my mind
You're the true north, and I found you, good night.
You're the true north, and I found you, good night.
You're the true north, and I found you, good night.
You're the true north, and I found you, good night.
