lyrics

well I'm cold, as I am these days
ever since you packed up and left so far away
with your thumb held up high
by the side of the road with the big trucks rollin' by
well you know how I dream
that I mean no harm and see the good in everything
and that I take anything that I find
that fits into my hands, alright alright
and I was told you were scared
and you lay there shaking, snowflakes in your hair
while the day, it grew young
and the glow of headlights told you to hold your tongue
...and then I opened my eyes
and the long night had passed
and I saw in my mind
right where you lay your head to rest
the morning news black & white
on the coffee table
and there's that river of meaningless type
the one I am unwilling and unable to wrap my head around
your filthy jeans, your old boots were found
in the mud and the silt of a river
six hundred miles south of this town
and I was told you were scared
and you lay there shaking, snowflakes in your hair
