"Hands In Pockets" as written by and Laura A Gibson....
Up with the sunrise you'll be staring
Out through the window of the day
I'll be another waking shadow
Cast on the covers of your bed

Give me another waking moment
Shine against the solemn grate
Tell me the seasons is almost over
I can wait

So goes another winter slowy
Hands in the pockets of my coat
You'll be first to spin your story
I'll be the last to let you go

Tell me you always go before me
Out along the solemn grate
Tell me the season is almost over
I can wait

When in day light leaves you staring
Out in another under tow
I'll be tired conversation
I'll be waiting, get home

Tell me you always go before me
Out along the solemn grate
Tell me the season is almost over
I can wait I can wait I can wait

    General CommentLaura Gibson is an amazing songwriter. Such a shame that no one else has said anything yet. I guess Nickelback and James Blunt get most of the attention around here. You go girl!

    General CommentI adore this song; the entire idea of waiting on a loved one, or one you love who may not love you back, fascinates me.

    Song MeaningLaura had this to say about the song from her Daytrotter Session:

    "I had thought up the first verse of this song and was humming the melody in my head several months before actually sitting down to write it. I never thought that I would write something so catchy…I love playing it. The song is about surviving the winter and other harsh seasons, and how we find ourselves stumbling towards (sometimes away from) intimacy with another person…be it a lover a friend or family."
