Snakes dripping down
From our feet,
Right beneath the piers
Where we were first to meet.
And I caught you once,
But you let me down twice.
I don't know how.

There was a place
We would all go to sing.
We'd gather 'round
The old town church
To hear those bells ring.
I'll never forget those days --
When I was worthy of your love.

And I promise I
Won't make a sound
'Cause I figure you
No longer want me around.
And I know that the days will pass
And soon, we'll be rid of these
Things.

So let soft words be spoken.
Join in these winter hymns.

Crows flying out
With old wings.
Bitter breath with lungs
That barely had the strength to sing.
And I fought you once,
But you let me win twice.
I don't know why.

And there's a chapter
That I keep on trying to read.
But the pages stick and crumble
Where your fingers used to be.
I'll never forget your hands,
'Cause they were always pushing me.

So let brave words be spoken.
Join in these winter hymns.

But just let us grow.
Patience was lost in the sea.
Just don't go.
And though this darkness
Will come,
And my heart is in stormy weather,
And the pain is all I have
For now,
And I'm homebound.
