it's perfectly suited
this uniform grey
there are no bearings
to the day

I came down from the air
and I'll leave by boat
I'm down with your rainy town
out on the spit
with the biggest port around
my friend is on the way
he's bringing my coat

oh you don't do, what I want you to
but I haven't been
through what you've been through
and we could use that
as an excuse
if that's what you choose
if that's what you choose

well it was kinda hard
to pull away
he said "Buck up baby,
it's okay
The sunlight on the floor will always fall."

and I meant to write it on the plane
high above my earthly pain
but I slept right through the flight
and that was all

oh you don't do, what I want you to
but I haven't been
through what you've been through
and we could use that
as an excuse
if that's what you choose
if that's what you choose

    General CommentI always assumed she was singing about Burlington, Ontario, her hometown because it's on the coast of Lake Ontario.

    But the traveling idea makes sense.

    Anyway, I absolutely LOVE this song. Probably my favourite by Sarah Harmer.
