Hard is the journey and long is the road
Long for a traveller’s daughter
And these are the colours that go with her soul:
Auburn skies over black waters

‘Nothing you want is as good as it seems’
Well, that was the one thing he taught her
So these are the pictures that fill up her dreams:
Auburn skies over black waters

Always afraid that he’ll leave her behind
She looks at her feet not to falter
And these are the landscapes she walks in her mind:
Auburn skies over black waters

Some days are better, some days are worse
But most days it’s senseless to fight back the curse
Some nights she’s sleeping, some she’s awake
But most nights she’s just holding on to whatever it takes

Long are the shadows and dark is the day
Dark for a traveller’s daughter
And these are the memories that won’t melt away:
Auburn skies over black waters
