We emptied all the bottles in your beautiful apartment
With the snow outside and the dying Christmas tree
We emptied all the bottles, we were feeling good and strong
And I was playing you songs on the guitar all night long
All night long, we were singing
All night long, and you said,

If I had a boat, I’d invite you on it
And we’d sail out on a frozen lake
Don’t know how far we’d go
Take it easy and slow
You could learn to live with me
I’d learn to live with you

Walking to the train from your beautiful apartment
Bundled up but a little embarrassed
Trying to read into your looks
Trying to read into your glances
Like paging through a book,
It’s all that you can do
When you’re not taking any chances

Looking out on your sparkling city
Gently swaying, softly rocking
Trying on a new life
Trying on a new start
So far away from home,
Could you help me play that part?


from A Small Universe, released April 1, 2011
