I'll mind my mouth, in a brand new town.
There's a dark thing that brought me here.
In the time of year when the things you hear,
won't lay down or disappear.

Damn, the winter has followed me,
waiting for softer times and greener leaves.
Stay awhile with me,
warm a body that aches here in these sheets alone.
Stay awhile with me,
warm a body that aches here in these sheets alone.

Damn, the winter has followed me,
waiting for softer times and greener leaves.
I may not find another of your kind,
I hold this true.
May not be a husband that's set free,
I said "I do".

Stay awhile with me,
warm a body that aches here in these sheets alone.
Hold a hand with no ring.
It's naked and cold, in a state too shocked to be old.

Stay awhile with me,
warm a body that aches here in these sheets alone.
Hold a hand with no ring.
It's naked and cold, in a state too shocked to be old.

    General CommentI don't know how this song doesn't have any comments. It's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

    The part that kills me is "I will not find another of your kind, I'll hold this true. I will not be a husband let set free, I said I do."

    Brilliant and devastating.
