Track Name: Hands Are For Holding Drinks
remember when you drove off in the wrong direction and i
tried to grab the wheel? you were frozen in the flashing headlights
and should've pulled the car to the curb, but you turned it around.
said, "you don't know how easy it is for me to leave you behind."
you don't know how easy it is for me to leave you behind.
the night that we were drinking at the bar and you started to cry,
screaming, "why the hell did this happen? why did she have to die?"
is forever burned into my mind;
and i could never answer your questions, hope you know that i tried.
i could never answer your questions, hope you know that i tried.
remember when you called me on the phone totally out of the blue?
i was quite a few years and twenty-seven hundred miles from you
and i could see you in my head, in your bed, in the dark of your room.
you don't know how easy it is for me to leave you behind.
you don't know how easy it is for me to leave you behind.
Track Name: Subway Dream
on a train, i'm across from eli.
katie's standing near the window,
but not looking out at the buildings.
eli is reading advertisements.
i ask him where we're going and he shrugs.
says, "it doesn't matter very much."
dan used to live on varet.
he don't seem to recognize me.
as the train pulls into the station
katie looks up. she's leaving.
i ask her where she's going and she shrugs.
says, "it doesn't matter very much."
i wake up and the window's open,
diesel trucks are blowing like the wind.
Track Name: Eskimo
i know it's been a long time, baby i know
it's been a long time coming. i've been running in the snow
like an eskimo that's always alone on a crowded ledge at a rooftop show.
the day before my birthday, darling today i saw that girl from california.
she was at parade and said, "you know, it's been a long time,"
and i said, "i know," and everything was fine.
all that i remember, all that i can recall
is thinking there is no way i will ever forget but i will.
i still had to pay to stay in a hotel room when i flew to LA.
we are in bed again darling, once again in the bed,
i read somewhere that there was something that could clear my head.
i missed a shot to swim with the dead, and i forgot what she said,
well, i wish that i had met you any moment before i fell the linoleum floor
of the grocery store.
i know it's been a long time, baby i know
it's been long time coming. i've been running in the snow
like an eskimo looking for somewhere to go
where he can sing at the top of his lungs and no one will know.
you are on the ice and i'm buried below.
baby, i'm the ice and you're the falling snow.
