Madeline what have you done
with the sweater your grandmother knit you?
Madeline how'd you get lost
and lonesome out there in the winter?
Madeline where did you go
when you walked out on us?
When you planted your shell in the snow
were your last thoughts of us or of sleeping?
Were your last thoughts of us or of sleeping?
Did you dream?
Were you looking for me?

Madeline who keeps you now
that memories won't let you grow older?
Did you make it to your throne in the city somehow
or did it go, unattended, to seed?
Madeline where can I meet you
when my eyes won't shut?
Did you sing yourself softly to sleep?
Or are you aging somewhere in the distance?
Are you waiting somewhere for your close-up?
When I sleep, are you smiling for me?

Madeline who are you now
that the river is all frozen over?
Are you somewhere out there in the snow
or is it a blanket you're under?
Madeline how have you changed?
It's been too long
Madeline what's your new name?
Does it sound like the songs that come praying?
Does it sound like the songs that come praying?
When I sleep are you winking at me?
