lyrics

Michelle

At first light I can see the snow high on the mountain
As my bus makes its way down Hastings street it is my one consolation
I see her every time I come, every time it’s the same conversation
“Can you spare some change?”
“Michelle not today I’m sorry I have none”

I know more about her history than I really care to
“I have two children you know,” she says, “ but they took them both away”
“I was only seventeen when I first felt the needle
My boyfriend said it takes your troubles away and I believed him”

Holding on to a life in pieces, she still smiles everyday

She has family she says to me way up there past the mountain
She was raised up to believe she shares a soul with that land
“Up there in the lakes and trees is what it must be like in heaven
still way down here that spirit speaks to me in the wisper of the wind”

Holding on to a faith in a mountain, so close but too far away

The dying light of the sun each day, it rests high on the mountain
I hold her name up to that place that she still believes in
That spirit she says lives up there, I hope is strong enough to rescue
One who is lost but still believes with the faith of a child

O Michelle may your faith move that mountain.
May you find your way home.
