Track Name: I Still Believe!
I'll walk as far as my legs will go
I'm not wearing the right shoes for snow
but I'll dawn my hat and my scarf and coat
and I'll walk as far as my legs will go,
'cause I still believe in you.

Give me rough & tumble,
give me shallow regret,
give me kiss & fumble
give me love and give me that
give me virtue,
give me honest and discreet
give me sweet and low-down
give me low & filthy feet.

I was blind before I met you,
I've never seen your eyes,
when we woke up I kissed you,
what have we been doing with our lives?
When will my eyes become yours?
I've never seen your eyes before,
when will your eyes become mine?
We didn't meet 'til I was blind.
Track Name: Wichita Christmas
I can stay with you 'til Christmas,
but then I gotta go back to work.
You're all alone, and I'm the only one on the road,
I'm comin' home, no one else wants to drive in the snow.
Track Name: We'll Be Kids
Had my heart broken on Christmas Eve,
it was probably my own fault, I was still learning how to read.
Broke each other's heart on labour day,
took the better part of a year, hope you're doing okay.

We will both be kids,
we will both be babies.

Broke a heart on a bank holiday,
it went pretty in a way, at least she didn't have to work that day.
Broke a girl's heart on her birthday,
It's honestly not what I meant, I just didn't know what to say.

Now you know I never meant to screw us over like I did
but now I told you that I'm sorry, honey we were just kids,
and I know you never meant to screw us over like you did
but now you told me that you're sorry, honey we were just kids,
Track Name: Come Thou Fount Of Ev'ry Blessing
Come thou fount of every blessing,
tune my heart to sing thy praise,
streams of mercy, never ceasing
call for songs of loudest praise.

Teach me some melodious sonnet,
sung by flaming tongues above,
praise thy mount, I'm fixed upon it,
mount of thy redeeming love.


Here I raise my Ebenezer,
hither by thy light I'm come
and I hope by thy good pleasure
safely to arrive at home

Jesus sought me when a stranger,
wandering from the fold of God.
He to rescue me from danger
interposed his precious blood.


Oh to grace, how great a debtor,
daily I'm constrained to be,
let that grace now, like a fetter
bind my wandering heart to thee.

Prone to wander, Lord i feel it
prone to leave the God I love
Here's my heart, oh take and seal it,
seal it for thy courts above.
Track Name: Feels Like Snow
We wore holes in our toes,
I'll take the wet, I'll take the cold. It feels like snow.
Breathe fog on my glasses,
and watch the streetlight angels glow. It feels like snow.

We cut the fingers off our gloves,
cold hands - warm heart, you know? Feels like snow.
You said that you wouldn't stay,
and I could feel you go. It feels like snow.

You in your new longcoat,
don't think I'd ever held so close. Feels like snow.
I walked you halfway home,
you kept looking at my mouth. Feels like snow.
Track Name: Dirty Water
Seems I've been dressing for the weather,
figuring the weather to be at it's worst,
watching the water getting wetter,
trying to wait out the thirst.

Things are getting better, but things are moving fast,
the snow will turn to water, that's alright -
the flood is where I'm at my best.

I like to welcome the winter.
Autumn gave the river all my stuff.
Seems that I've been dressing for the weather,
I hope that that's not enough.

Things are getting better, but things are moving fast,
the snow will turn to water, that's alright -
the flood is where I'm at my best.

I like it when the water's rising,
I like the dirt in the snow,
I drink the dirty water,
I swim my best in the flood.

Things are getting better, but things are moving fast,
snow will turn to water - this is me at my best,
I like the water rising, like the dirt in the snow,
I drink the dirty water, I swim my best in the flood.
Track Name: Fast Friends
I've got a coat for the worst kind of climate,
but I must admit that when the cold gets inclement,
there's no warmth like yours.
I'm happy to mix you a mojito
so grab a glass and fill it with snow,
let's take a walk in the cold.

So anyway I wanted to thank you,
a man can't live on milk and cookies alone.
Track Name: Borrow Your Scarf
I want to get lost, and I wanna miss you
I want to endure hardship, and I wanna piss off you
I want to go through something, just to get through it
I wanna get real real cold and I wanna borrow your scarf.

I want to see it snow too hard, I want to need grit,
I want you to get me a real good present and for you to not give a shit.
I want you to keep something in just to keep it a secret
and I want you explode someday. I want to borrow your scarf.

Where you are going it gets colder,
we'll meet again when we're older.

I wanna go out in the stormy weather,
I wanna meet someone on the street and I wanna forget her.
I wanna go through something, I wanna shake,
I want to be humbled, I wanna make a mistake.

I want to see my breath outside, I want to sneeze,
I want to huddle around a fire, I want it to be up to my knees,
I wanna get real excited just to be let down,
I want to see my breath inside, I wanna need that scarf.
Track Name: HAPPYNEWYEAR!
Half my shit is gone,
I've been livin' alone.
Half my shit is gone since you've been gone.

I spent Christmas alone,
I never see anyone,
I been livin' alone since you've been gone.

Ooo I never never see anyone since January 1.
The landlord won't phone back,
I think I've gotta dine & dash.

If I could play the guitar
I'd play you a Christmas song,
that's if I could play the guitar anymore.

I could play you a song,
if I could play the guitar,
but it's been a while, and even then it was hard.

Ooo I never got your letter,
have you got my new address?
I moved, it seems like yesterday,
although now I guess it's some years past.
Track Name: Coldest Winter
On lonely nights I start to fade
Her love is a thousand miles away
Memories made in the coldest winter
Goodbye my friend will I ever love again?
Memories made in the coldest winter.

It's 4am and I can't sleep
Her love is all that I can see
Memories made in the coldest winter
Goodbye my friend will I ever love again?
Memories made in the coldest winter
winter, winter.

Goodbye my friend, will I ever love again?

If spring can take the snow away
Can it melt away all of our mistakes?
Memories made in the coldest winter
Goodbye my friend I won't ever love again.
Never again
Track Name: Everyone Can't Know Everything
Of course I wanna know if you're naughty or nice,
but I don't a list, I don't want your whole life
put in one column, just one or the other
don't be absolute, just coal or a present.
there's lots of middle ground, and that's where I'm living.
I make mistakes, okay, but at present I'm giving.
Everyone can't know everything.

Alright, you've gotta give Santa a break,
I'm doing the best I can
but I'm sorry to say,
I need some of these kids to be naughty.

not in one column, just one or the other
sorry to be absolute, just coal or a present.
there's lots of middle ground, and that's where I'm living.
I make mistakes, okay, but at present I'm giving.
Everyone can't know everything.
Track Name: Wish For You
I can tell you why people drive on your street
when everybody knows your street isn't any place to go.
Last year I made a Christmas wish and I wished for something stupid.
It was a stupid thing to do, yeah I shoulda wished for you.

The clouds raise to reveal the haze,
snow goes to reveal wet roads.
When will my eyes become yours?
I've never even seen your eyes,
we didn't meet 'til I was blind,
When will your eyes become mine?

I've got a picture that I don't show anyone,
it's you and you look fine.
Looking at me like it's Christmas time.
