Lyrics

She walks down to the lake, walks along the perimeter
She is spring, she is summer, hoping it won't limit her
She painted peace
She painted peace

She stares out over nothing, water clear as the bell
It rings like a lover, it touches her like a lover
She painted peace
She painted peace

She holds her hands together and rocks from side to side
Like leaves on an empty tree, spare change in the wind
She painted peace
She painted peace

Her secrets lie about like a field ready for snowing
She is fall, she is winter, and her secret is not knowing
She painted peace
She painted peace

You don't have to remember me
I'm like original sin
Just as long as you win
I could eat the wind, I'd be as fat as California
As long as I can breathe you know that I'll adore ya
She painted peace
She painted peace
