I hear the snow is fallin’ in Alberta
I was born here, but I wandered far
Like a bear in an open field;
I was lonely, and I
Longed to be healed

My feet carried me like a dangerous beast
I learned to care for my own disease,
Not knowing where I wanted to live
Not knowing who I wanted to be

Those cold, blue skies under which I will die
Have made me a child again,
Back where it all began
In Alberta
Where wheat is buried deep under snow,
Coyotes call and tease the dogs
My new life is covered in frost,
In Alberta

My infant eyes
Open wide as the river winds
Wisdom flows as the seasons find
Me naked and yielding
A new seedling, aching to be found


Oh Alberta, make me a woman
Who cares for the cold
Oh Alberta, make me a woman
Who comes alive again where she was born
In Alberta
