Utah and Colorado: Hazel Delehey and friends are hiking for miles and Hazel has fallen ill. She and her friends call themselves the “Stoke Train” to keep them going.
 
I got a bad cold
Terrible heat for 18 days
My feet hurt, my throat hurt
 
I got a fever in the night
I wanted to go home
Every day was a struggle
for me to keep going on
 
Single file and singing
Everyone’s on the stoke train
Stoke train keep on moving
Keep me from sitting down

Wanted to be in that place
Felt mad at myself
Embrace the huge sky and the stars
Embrace, embrace
 
Single file and singing
Everyone’s on the stoke train
Stoke train keep on moving
Keep me from sitting down
 
I don’t wanna leave I have to do this
Staring up at the sun so bright
Nature
Nature’s on the stoke train, too
 
Single file and singing
Everyone’s on the stoke train
Stoke train keep on moving
Keep me from sitting down
