Oh what tangled sheets we wove
Open the oven door, heat from the stove fills the kitchen
Standing barefoot I listen, the lady upstairs fills the bath.

You left earlier on your own
Turn the hot water, hear the piping groan and the pilot strike
The wheels of your bike left lines in the frost on the path

See my breath, can’t feel my ears
See my breath, can’t feel my ears
Seems like it’s been cold for years in here

Cold feet at the sink, a grey daydream
Water boils, the kettle screams steam and the windows haze up
Milk storms in a teacup, a morning routine is relieving

You always leave the warmest scent
You whispered and kissed me before you went
Something I didn’t catch, just your key in the latch
and I only like that in the evening

See my breath, can’t feel my ears
See my breath, can’t feel my ears
Seems like it’s been cold for years in here
