The road tonight is cold with ice
and no cars pass by
thank god for no phone call
just snow and a fire

December endings and since you send me things
I just feel further north
this year took ten years to tell me that I'm alone again

everythings heres about to break
I'm one inch from more than I can take
and its beautiful and sad
but it's all that I have
so tonight lets stay inside

I'll be the husband, with a book for a bride
tonight lets stay inside

I could play guitar
I've got so many songs that you've never heard
and they werent about you
and I wont change a word
just because youre gone

the trees creak with their arthritic arms
brittle in their powdered bark
blue moonlight; I cant cry right
but I miss you tonight

everything here's about to break
I'm one inch from more than I can take
and it's beautiful and sad
but it's all that I have
so tonight I'll stay inside

there are things better I'd like, to try with you
but I stay inside
tonight I stay inside
I could play guitar

    General Commenti like this one a lot and can relate to it.
    regardless of whether or not you're missing a significant other, i think everyone can relate to wanting to stay inside away from people.
    lyrically, i think this is along the same lines as 'i typed for miles'. perhaps not as bitter.

    General Commentthis is such a beautiful song. "it's beautiful and it's sad, but its all that i have" awesome awesome lyrics. i just wish that i had gotten into this band sooner. goodness me.
    but anyways, this song reminds me of being lonely and being away from someone who you love. that's just how i think of it.

    --i just feel for the north

    --there are things better id like to try with you
