i see that winter has come early to your house and left a frost upon your grounds i should be stretched out in the sun but something pulls me back to now i want to raise my muddy face want you to pull me out when i came around you were the richest man in the world i used your name as my password but just when i was getting used to the back of your head you threw the race, stole the taste out of my winning i want to trade, give you my back, and watch you walk right out i want to fade, take back the past, and turn it inside out

who am i to question fate but only fatalists settle and i won't sit here idly by and watch you idle we're supposed to vanish in time but i've been blinking to keep you in focus if it's my turn to shine i close my eyes, i make a wish

    My Interpretation"...just when i was getting used to the back of your head..."

    Possibly a reference to a scene in the play "You Can't Take it With You" (1937) by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman:

    TONY. (Following her.) And then you tell him what it was about him that first took your girlish heart.
    ALICE. (Leaning against table.) The back of your head.
    TONY. Huh?
    ALICE. Uh-huh. It wasn't your charm, and it wasn't your money ... it was the back of your head. I just liked it.
    TONY. What hapened when I turned around?
    ALICE. Oh, I got used to it after awhile.
