lyrics

She hasn't been the same in years
As her memory fades it accentuates her husband's existential doubts and fears
Puts on her favorite Tyson
Staring out the glass in waves her past comes flooding back
She's in there all along
The Prairie line it shines tonight she's not alone
The magic hour brings her family home

Working hard in sands and tar
In a finite world he works for her just to return and see those golden curls
At 8 years old she looks outside
Wonders if her dad is staring back or if he simply left to run and hide
The prairie line it shines tonight she's not alone
The magic hour brings her father home

Whoa
Raise the glass you just poured
Whoa
Shout so they can't ignore

Nestled in the mountains
Eclectic voices won't thin
Wild rose companion
Watch the sun you'll never be alone
Highways
Outstretched in a gold haze
Echoes as the band plays
The magic hour lets you know you're home

First nations elder on reserve
As a child was raised in residential schools receiving treatment not deserved
Refused to let culture dilute
Now he helps it thrive and strive to stay alive
A beautifully rich history exudes
The prairie line it shines tonight he's not alone
The magic hour brings his people home

A smile wide as waters rise
A whole community in unity
A civil servant happy to help lives
The prairie line it shines tonight we're not alone
The magic hour guides our parade home

Whoa
Raise the glass you just poured
Whoa
Shout so they can't ignore

Nestled in the mountains
Eclectic voices won't thin
Wild rose companion
Watch the sun you'll never be alone
Highways
Outstretched in a gold haze
Echoes as the band plays
The magic hour lets you know you're home

This is not about tribalism or contest
This is all a sign of humanism at its best
A mosaic of diversity rest on a shield
This golden horizon beckons us across the field

Whoa
We are all racing towards the sun

Nestled in the mountains
Eclectic voices won't thin
Wild rose companion
Watch the sun you'll never be alone
Highways
Outstretched in a gold haze
Echoes as the band plays
The magic hour lets you know you're home
