lyrics

oh my dear please sing to me
oh my dear listen to me
don’t go home
tonight would be too soon

driving down 64 alone tonight
the rain patters soft and the oncoming lights
they shine
straight through my weary eyes

I try to explain but they don’t listen to me
I’ve gotta tear down walls just to make them see
just why
my hearts colder by and by

(chorus)
I’m unloading groceries in the pale moonlight
the driveway never seemed so long
I look up at the sky
the stars don’t shine as bright
these memories are getting even harder to see
it doesn’t sit well to make my mind believe
but I try and try and try
and stumble back into the night

just when you think its time to make me believe
another notch on the post, another stain on your sleeve
it’s about time
I took your picture down anyway

your friends I never knew them well, let’s say
but I was in the old flat yesterday
and something told me to stay
I wish I knew what it was

so I could drown out all these feeling that tug
and tear at my soul
I feel so strung out on a drug
that’s never quite enough

(chorus)
and the snow
it falls so slow
please don’t go
life keeps doing this to me
I’m unloading groceries in the pale moonlight
the driveway never seemed so long
I look up at the sky
the stars don’t shine as bright
these memories are getting even harder to see
it doesn’t sit well to make my mind believe
but I try and try and try
and stumble back into the night


oh my dear please sing to me
oh my dear listen to me
don’t go home
tonight would be too soon
