And your legs all white
From the winter

    General Commentmaybe this should be in 3 lines - haiku style.

    it's lovely written down like this - maybe better than the recording.

    I do love the spelled out version though. very strange.

    General CommentSounds like a desperate longing for someone the author doesn't expect to see again, be it death or distance. When we lose someone close to us we tend to miss the small insignificant things we took for granted. Sounds like he would give anything just to see her again, no matter how mundane the circumstances.

    My OpinionI feel like he is speaking as someone of old age who longs for that vitality of youth represented by Heather with her youthful skin and carefree attitude. Just my little two cents worth.
