lyrics

your old car has been broken down for weeks
we keep pushing it to the opposite side of the street
cursing under our breath the parking police
hold on girl nine months more on our lease
as foretold New England homes are dripping with the snow
all so cold those northern bones are shivering ‘neath their cloths
she says “I’m growing old in this solemn subtle freeze”
and I can’t help but feel alone ‘neath the crooked naked trees
so close your eyes while winter blows through the cracks of our walls wraps her frigid arms around us with a chill you can't ignore pull up sheets pull out wool, to a squall we acquiesce
an apartment ghost sweeps and moans then scurries past our door
the building din, old and worn in like footsteps on the floor
we will dream of warmer things figs and orange trees
when your old car gets fixed we’ll drive a southern breeze
she says “I fear that I might never leave this place,
but it’s not so bad I guess, lest I lose my winter grace”
just close your eyes while winter blows through the cracks of our walls wraps her frigid arms around us
with a chill you can't ignore pull up sheets pull out wool,
to a squall we acquiesce
