Wake up late to an early freeze
To black ice and skeleton trees
The cold Pacific shivers at me,
“Why don’t you go back home”
Walk the beach in the lonely mist
Can’t see the water but I hear the hiss
Makes me think of that first time we kissed
In the ocean foam

There was this face of sunburnt grace
I could gaze upon
Looked into eyes the color of the sky at dawn
Now I look - and Katie’s gone

I remember the red coat
The way her hair blew across her throat
Behind the market where we would smoke
Where I fell in love

There was this face of sunburnt grace
I could gaze upon
Looked into eyes the color of the sky at dawn
Now I look - and Katie’s gone

Go to bed and nothing’s changed
Every day is just the same
I hear her laugh and say her name
Over and over again
Maybe tomorrow I’ll hitch up and go
Get outta here before the snow
Away from these scarecrows
Cranberry bogs and gin

There was this face of sunburnt grace
That I could gaze upon
Looked into eyes the color of the sky at dawn
Now I look - and Katie’s gone
