Lyrics

Klamath version

The wind holds us like ears of corn
We listen with our eyes closed
All we know is the sun
With the wind, we grow to the sun
We keep our place in line
We move slowly inch by inch
We stare at the gate
We show papers to the guard
I pray the harvest comes
Because when the harvest comes
I know there's someone waiting for me
There's someone waiting for me

Oh give the blind their victory
Their dark sick eyes, their empty lives
Let them go, set them free
Because when the harvest comes
I know there's someone waiting for me
There's someone waiting for me

There's someone waiting for me

Brannan St. version

I run across the golden field into the late California sun
All the crickets, they start to sing
The dead stars are everything

On the wild green hill above the sea
A dad and his kid and their delight
Sparklers and bottle rockets crack
A sunset beauty filled with light

I know there's someone waiting for me
There's someone waiting for me

And I feel the spin of the world
And the cold California moon
And I know the world is more than stone
Beyond rotten guts and broken bones
My foolish loves, my hollow hate
And in the dark I climb the gate

And I know there's someone waiting for me
There's someone waiting for me
