about

This is a song I wrote years ago that I only now really wanted to record. The lyrics are deeply personal, and as a mellow song I never really wanted to record it until now.

lyrics

Can't you see it's cold outside
Colder than the day before
And the slights we used to let ride
They walk you out the door

If you take one look at me
And cannot see the smile in my eyes
Then you can plainly see

That you never see it coming cause it takes you from behind
You got five months to go still before you can unwind
So you slide into winter
Shut yourself down

No joy around the Christmas tree
Sitting in your turtleneck sweater
Waiting for the sun to wake up
I wish it were Easter

If you take one look at me
And cannot see the smile in my eyes
Then you can plainly see

That you never see it coming cause it takes you from behind
You got five months to go still before you can unwind
So you slide into winter (no home today)
Slide into winter (no home today)
Slide into winter (no home today)
Shut yourself down
