So much for unexpected weather
It's been overcast forever
Since I fell from my sweetheart's clutches
To a springtime spent on crutches

Coffee cups, promises, sure
But I've never broken bones before

So many staring at the wall days
I've been housebound ever and always
I can't believe the time it's taking
This evening I'm escaping

When the streetlights shine
And the footpath glistens
There are friends of mine
Within walking distance
When the streetlights shine
And it looks like Christmas
There are friends of mine
Within walking distance

Coffee cups, promises, sure
But I've never broken bones before

    General CommentSometimes the Lucksmiths can seem too clever for their own good, but rarely are they "punny" for mere rhyming cleverness. "Since I fell from my sweetheart's clutches..." how wonderful is that?
    There doesn't seem to be too much Lucksmiths chatter, but I wonder, this being an Aussie band ... I wonder about the weather references in this song. It's not Xmas anywhere in "springtime," and because it's not cold and dark (when the streetlights shine...) at Christmas in Australia. Any insight?
