I met up with her around midday on a Sunday,
Some number of days before Christmas.
Abandoned my friends and I took her by the hand,
And we walked upon the city that was built for us.
It's funny how it sounds, but she was lost and I was found.
She was drowning, I was trying to stay dry.
So she took an uptown train, I stumbled back to the bar again
To try to drink her out of my mind.

I've got hands that will only tear everything to shreds,
Heavy and tragic they are.
And she's got a lover that she promised forever
So I know for her it's not this hard.

Now I'm caught up inside, drive my car down past the state line.
Making my way south for the winter.
Knots in my chest telling me it's for the best
To suppress the thoughts and maybe just forget her.
Familiar is the sound of my feet upon the ground,
And the warmth of the water from my eyes.
So I'll take the medicine and wait for it to kick in,
And plan my way back north a few more time.

Now I've got friends that will only tear everything to shreds,
They tell me this won't be ok.
That she's got a lover that she promised forever
And that I should probably stay away.

And I said no...

Now I've got plans that will only take me so far out
Before they bring me right back
And she's got a lover that she promised forever
So I know for her it's not this bad.
