Such a fire in the winter chill
Out of nowhere I can feel it still, all burned down
Standing ragged at the backdoor screen
I fell lightly in a basement dream, all unwound
Though no one waited, I did not stay long

At a table somewhere in betweeen
Second chances and a mystery, she came in late
With her hair back, like she used to do
Once a lover, now, just once removed and, once again
When the bottle broke I could not look away


I'll send a tape from Minnesota
I found a picture I forgot to show you
A song I never got to sing in them broken days
All the money I saved is gone
It wasn't much, but it lasted long
She was never the one, I figured out on the run, when I was miles away

Much too old to say I was too young
And, of all the things that I have done
I am not proud
But, I think I feel it coming 'round
Yeah, I think I'm finally coming down from all that stuff
If the aim is righteous, then let the shot be true
