Lyrics

Old friend, you were like the winter:
You’d freeze and you’d melt and you’d urge me to shelter.
I’d dress myself different somehow
Days you were around.

And nights with you here, they were longer.
Dark it hung ‘round like a tree full of crows,
And changed all the shadows I’d throw.
The world barely saw me.

It’s a long road we’re walkin’.
Try to learn, try to soften.
And darkness comes often.
No reason to cry out your eyes.

Something blew out last December.
Alone in that airport, the crowd or the weather,
Whatever it was, I was changed,
And I abandoned you there.

It’s a long road we’re walkin’.
Try to learn, try to soften.
And daylight comes often.
No reason to cry out your eyes.

You get up, you get down.
You get lost, you get found.
You can run from deep water and still end up drowned.
You get up, you get down.
You get lost, you get found.
You can run, run, run, run, run, run, run.

Now you may build castles on mountains,
Dance with rare beauties on lips of gold fountains.
Whoever you hold you should know
I care less every day.

‘Cause someone will treat me much better.
Soon I will float ‘round this town like a feather,
And friends when they see me will say:
“Now don’t she look well.”

It’s a long road we’re walkin’.
Try to learn, try to soften.
And daylight comes often.
No reason to cry out your eyes.

You get up, you get down.
You get lost, you get found.
You can run from deep water and still end up drowned.
You get up, you get down.
You get lost, you get found.
You can run, run, run, run, run, run, run.
