Lyrics

I went out to the wilderness I lived on roots and dirt never saw the crime in it as long as no one got hurt I played with fragile things I could not afford to break and pay for I fell down on my knees never thought to pray for you I heard misfortune befell you and none of your friends took heed none of your loved ones called you in your time of need I knew that I would helpless yet I couldn't walk away built my house on sacred ground where I knew I shouldn't stay then I heard misfortune befell you and none of your friends took heed none of your loved ones called you in your time of need love gets hidden away so well like an attic full of perfect songs you will find the heart to sing them long after I've gone but if misfortune should befall you and none of your friends took heed none of your loved ones call you in your time of need I will come to follow you and wish you godspeed
