"across the street" as written by and Mark Kozenek Warren M. Defever....
today the south is covered in snow
away sometimes my memory goes
i'm the queen and you're the king
never did much together
if you're as smooth as you are sweet
i'll come to you from across the street
i ain't gonna drive all over you
i ain't goin down that road
leaves are turning
the air gets cold
lake frozen over
the season unfolds
in my bed i cannot rest
until we sleep together
i'm gonna stay right here
'til you change your mind
i'm so broken hearted
and i'm worried all the time
the easiest work i ever done
was swinging my true loves arm
the hardest work i ever done
was working out on the farm

    General CommentA very simple, beautiful love song. Kind of reminds you of that bliss you feel when you first fall in love with someone, the high from the endorphins of love. As a side note, this song was co-written by HNIA mastermind Warren Defever and Mark Kozelek (of Red House Painters at the time, and Sun Kil Moon currently).
