From the recording Stories
The night ran away with my heart in its teeth
Now it’s fading like yesterday, with the ghosts of what cannot be
All that we shared lies here in this room.
All that we loved lingers in the air like perfume.
The night comes and the night goes
These open wounds will never close
As it all falls away in this frozen town
All I can see is an empty glass and your empty seat
And all I can hear, is the ice cracking beneath my feet
All… All the statues look down,
All… All the faces in town… surround…
They surround me, surround you, they knew us both as one not two
Now they wonder where we went wrong
But it’s our choice, it’s our lives, it’s our turn to decide
If it all falls away in this frozen town.
We loved with our hands, but our minds weren’t there
We spoke icy words and they froze in the air.
All I could hear was the snapping of the trees
All I could see was a minefield of memories
The night came and the night went
We said things that we never meant
It all fell away in that frozen town.
