"Stinging Velvet" as written by and Case....
Rain falls
I fix my eyes
I let go of the focus
And I blur out all the lines
Just to remember
Remember

Crying
'Cause it's not my fault
Water through my lashes
Look just like Christmas lights
And I still remember
Remember

Cold and shivering
Cold and shivering
Cold and shivering warm

Sing please
Rock me to sleep
Quiet as a canyon
Up under heaven's eaves
I surrender
Surrender

Downstairs
The furnace swells
Safe from all the horrors
In your stinging velvet arms
And I surrender
Surrender

Cold and shivering
Cold and shivering
Cold and shivering warm

Cold and shivering
Cold and shivering
Cold and shivering warm

    General CommentThis song is one of my favourites. "Stinging velvet arms". A man's hairy, gentle arms :). I know those :D.

    It's a song where a woman is in the rain and remembers another rainy day, when she was crying over some injustice, shivering and cold, and found solace in the arms of her man.

    The swelling downstair 'furnace' would be either his... you know, or her... counterpart ;). Sounds like they had a really nice night.

    One of the sweetest lyrics I know, that avoid being tacky. The song certainly resonates with me and some of my memories :D.
