lyrics

Funny how you chose the first frost
To freeze the words among us
And draw all the songs from Lily's lungs
With wild whisky tongue and twine
Fear, fight, frown

The table she laid was first to break
The fine varnished oak in splinters
The tree it did fall and needles tore
Her flesh on the boards beneath her

Once were bells and sparkle eyes
Cinnamon fires and sacred nights
Waltz and whirl and starry skies
My advice is hold your Lily tight

So visit your soul and rake your bones
From dirt and dust and din
And build you a heart with all good parts
The bolts and the cogs within
No fear, no fight, no frown
No fear, no fight

Once were bells and sparkle eyes
Cinnamon fires and sacred nights
Waltz and whirl and starry skies
My advice is hold your Lily tight
No fear, no fight, no frown
No fear, no fight, no frown

Funny how you chose the first frost
To freeze the words among us
