Lyrics

Well I'll be the fresh fallen snow of your winter
Which leaves you trembling
And I'll be the west to the suns last surrender
With no need of assembly
I'll be the one who writes you a letter
Though I don't know where you live
You'll be the one who could treat me better
But you've nothing left to give

So when you hop aboard the next train
Bring with you all the joy
You can fit into storage
When you feel the need to refrain
Don't do it for me, do it for you

I'll be your packing tape
It's a beautiful thing to keep your life together
And you'll write me all of my songs
I don't care how long we make it
You know there's no such thing as us or forever
So keep me in tune and I'll keep you along

We'll be the drunks at a holiday service
Who are firmly ejected
You'll run your mouth and make everyone nervous
But I'll be the one arrested

Who'll be the warm socks you wear in December
Not to be suggestive
I'll liquor you up like your local bartender
Then consume the rest of it

Why worry about the next days
When that ship ain't even here
Nor will it ever be
I'll do my best not to deflate
When I fill you with my breeze

I'll be your packing tape
It's a beautiful thing to keep your life together
And you'll write me all of my songs
I don't care how long we make it
You know there's no such thing as us or forever
So keep me in tune and I'll keep you along
