(it’s) Tough to close this map
There’s too much wind in the back
It’s your new coat – I don’t like
It’s way too cold – the radio plays

The sky blue-black tonight
You should turn on - your lights
Cause when they flash – you’ll know
It’s when they flash – you’re not alone here

Make an offer to pretend
The words are less like lines
You’ve seen it all before
The sign left standing

so silence is the way
of breaking up the days
it’s in the back – I’ll know
it’s the back – I’m not alone here

Make an offer to pretend
there’s nothing more to this
This means more than it does
The scene left standing
