from by Gil Hockman



I hear the words come out of your mouth
But I'm sinking in the bathtub
On a Thursday after work
I suppose I need some looking after

Some Birds fly out of the north
Searching for a happy ever after
When they return for whatever it's worth
They'll be dragging the winter after

I've never seen the break of day
Come without a night as it would in Norway
But I know I have felt the pain
That comes with standing in your doorway
And I pray for whatever it's worth
For a time that I can remember
Sixty years from now
Without an echo of your laughter
