One by one the bricks fell out of my favorite place downtown. The air smells rotten, the clouds are dark, and I'm headed for the basement.
The kids paint the halls with magazines, a cigarette burns on the stove. Someone blocked the window with plasticine, the fire escape's on loan. Riding out this winter wave...
The courthouse opened early. There's a line going round the block. The judge makes a sandwich of my dossier and the thin hands on the clock. You said it yourself, I should head for the country, but my head's so soft inside. My friend, you know I'm not doing well but I'm just doing the best for me. Riding out this winter wave, riding out this winter wave, like a bear in a cave, my heart slows. I can't hear you, you're so far away.
Don't turn around, don't turn around, don't do it. I've got diamond eyes in the mirror, I burn a fire to blank out the dark. So many days to sleep it away, when will you come and wake up my heart? You're so far away...
Track Name: wind die[s] (single)
Slow days, slow days, empty nights to fill with the rest of our lives. I want it to begin today, oh let it begin today.
We sit here like it's forever. The wind dies down. The old dream's returning that I'd held for so long.
But then she says it's still over, and she gets up to shake off the sand. Wait for me now, and see it my way. I aim to give you all I can.
