Secret of the Crossroads Devil

I have seen the Northern Lights
Looked out my window at just the right time
I'd been waiting for a sign
When green and golden, they filled the night sky

Now this vision it was mine
But which direction, so much to ponder
I would take a little time
I've waited this long, why not longer?

And the nights are getting colder
Does this touch of grey really mean I'm getting this much older
Coyote's getting bolder, laughing right outside the door

But if you want to see the Northern Lights
You gotta lift up your head and
If you wanna have some kind of life
Decide you're not better off dead and
If you want to read the mystic story written in your future
You better start to write it now...

Who can tell the truth from lies?
What's a life without examination?
Afraid to scan the midnight skies
I’d keep my head down, wait for confirmation
And the nights are getting colder
And yeah this touch of grey really means I'm getting this much older
Coyote's getting bolder, stealing stuff right out the door

But if you want to see the Northern Lights
You gotta lift up your head and
If you wanna have some kind of life
Decide you're not better off dead and
If you want to read the mystic story written in your future
You better start to write it now...

I met the devil in afield
I said "Oh finally! Did you bring my contract?"
And the secret he revealed
Was that he waits for no one, and he's never made a single deal

Meanwhile the nights have gotten cold
Yeah that shock of grey means man you're really getting old
Coyote's gotten bold, you know he's sleeping on your floor

But if you want to see the Northern Lights
You gotta lift up your head and
If you wanna have some kind of life
Decide you're not better off dead and
If you want to read the secret story written in your future
You better start to write it now...
