"Lines Written In Winter" as written by and Fionn Regan....
I'm down below the bridge
Like I'm cornered in a dungeon
This cardboard lies between me and
Eight men lying beside a fire
Snow falls heavy in the north reflecting
Tail lights in shop fronts
The beat of feet report the last ones
Leaving out of sight

I'd give it over just to hear you say
I need to see you, completely
I wanna tell you that I make your bed
Break it up and I do it again
So it feels like you've been here
But I know that you're not coming home
You're lost between the glitter of winter
And the big world darkness

I watch childhood parents depart, I was
Dormant in the doldrums
Those winters flickered on tables for
Laughter to reunite
Sleet and hail on the skyline like sheets
Wrapping little fires
I painted pictures of them depicting
Angels in heaven

I'd give it over just to hear you say
When I was missing you came out walking
I wanna tell you that I make your bed
Break it up and I do it again
So it feels like you've been here
But I know that you're not coming home
You're lost between the glitter of winter
And the big world darkness
