Beside a hole in your down coat pocket
Is the note where you straightened your thoughts
On the paint cracking dry that had once matched your eyes
Lies the weight of my rusted post box

Keep your head on your heart
Keep your heart from the cold
When the last of the tears have fallen
We will unfold

The ice on the grass is sounding
Each footstep into the wood
In the light of the whippoorwill winter
I understood

Keep your head on your heart
Keep your heart from the cold
When the last of the years have fallen
We will unfold

Oh, sweet summer sun
You were my only one
At dawn and dusk
'Til kingdom come
The seasons change
What's done is done

Keep your head on your heart
Keep your heart from the cold
In the light of the whippoorwill winter
We will unfold
