When I light a match
To scorch away the snow mounts creeping things
When I light a match
To scorch away the snow mounts creeping things

She goes away
Flows from me
Too freely (x2)

I am brown dirt
Left upon the shore
Where boats they once came
To leave what now remains (x2)

And I am here (x2)
I came into it but real soon
Go to find some other tree bark
To walk another block
To sit on for a while

She goes away
Flows from me
Too freely (x2)

I am brown dirt
Left upon the shore
Where boats they once came
To leave what now remains (x2)

And I am here (x2)
I came into it but real soon
Go to find some other tree bark
To walk another block
To sit on for a while

Until the days are done
The days are done

    General CommentI think the beginning says:
    "Can I light a match to scorch away the snow mounts creek, bad veins."
    Doesn't really make sense but thats what I hear.
