Going to Spirit Lake is an unreleased song by the Mountain Goats.


Why did you say what you said when the hummingbird vanished from sight
In the sudden swelling heat of the dark October night
You were laughing and your eyes were alive
And I knew that the moment had finally arrived
And I reached out through the air for your hand and held on tight
You said the right thing
You fixed everything
As the stars formed a canopy over Spirit Lake
You said what you said
And the stars grew softer overhead
I was on fire
I was on fire for you
