View Lyrics

Don’t be fooled when the false spring comes
You’ll be breaking your fall on the walk again
You can calm your nerves on a kinder wind
But never drop your guard in the state we’re in

Oh you could be like the bird in the winter
Who sings just to fall quiet again

I’ll get lost in the meaning of life
Out in the grass with my naked toes
Even if it’s a beautiful lie
Take what you can get, that’s the way it goes

Oh you could be like the bird in the winter
Who sings just to fall quiet again

Oh you could be like the bird in the winter
Who sings just to fall quiet again

Notes
When the world seems to big and wild, write a song about the weather. We had an unseasonably warm weekend here in New York, and it had everyone feeling great. Leave it to me to tell everyone to pump their breaks. It isn’t March yet. It isn’t time for this. This isn’t real. It’s a dirty trick.

But hold on a second. It matters that it’s beautiful. It matters that we exhale even if we must hold our breath again after. It matters that the world builds reprieve into its cycles so we don’t forget what we’re waiting for. It matters.

This song is about the weather, but maybe it’s got something meatier in the subtext. Draw that out for yourself if you can. If not, no matter. If you’re with us here in New York, or anywhere else they got a bit of spring in the winter, I hope you found it a pleasant interlude.
