It’s been hard doin’ anything, the winter’s stuck around so long
I kept tryin’ anyhow, and I’m still tryin’ now, just to keep workin’.
I remember when it didn’t used to be so hard, it used to be impossible
A new season has to begin, I can feel it leanin’ in, whisperin’, “Nothing’s lonely now”
Nothing anymore in pain
A tall shadow dressed how the secrets always dress when they want everyone to know that they’re around, leanin’ in whisperin’ “my friend over there don’t know what he’s talking about”.
Did you really believe that everyone makes it out?
Almost no one makes it out.
I’m going to use that street to hide from that human doubt, to hide from what was shining and has finally burned us out.
But if no one makes it out how come you’re talking to one right now?
for once almost was good enough.
