I dreamt of a fever
One that would cure me of this cold, winter set heart
With heat to melt these frozen tears
Burned with reasons as to carry on
Into these twisted months I plunge without a light to follow
But I swear that I would follow anything
Just get me out of here
But you get six months to adapt
And you get two more to leave town
In the event that you do adapt
We still might not want you around
But I fell for the promise of a life with a purpose
But I know that that's impossible now
And so I drink to stay warm
And to kill selected memories
'Cause I just can’t think anymore about that or about her tonight
But I give myself three days to feel better
Or else I swear I'll drive right off a fucking cliff
Because if I can’t learn to make myself feel better
How can I expect anyone else to give a shit?
And I scream for the sunlight or a car to take me anywhere
Just get me past this dead and eternal snow
Cause I swear that I am dying, slowly, but it's happening
And if the perfect spring is waiting somewhere
Just take me there
Just take me there
Just take me there
And say and lie to me and say
And lie to me and say
It’s going to be all right
It’s going to be all right
It’s going to be all right
It’s going to be all right
It’s going to be all right
It’s going to be all right
It’s going to be all right
It's going to be all right
It's going to be all right

    this just makes the song so powerful

    My InterpretationEveryone says that listening to this song makes them want to cry but really, it takes all of my problems and sorrow of winter and gives me energy, like when you're so upset you get mad and energetic. It takes all the negative energy and throws me into spring with force.

    sorry for such a weird description
