lyrics

Seems they’ve strained the smile from my lips
And I’ve been running ever since
They keep me standing certain ways,
Watch for signs of hesitation
Now I had got a mind to make a change
If I’m cold and I’m distant, that I can explain

It’s a cold song, an early morning song
I can see my breath and the melody is gone
It’s a cold song, an early morning song
It’s all I’ve got to keep this body warm

Seems joy might have left me long ago
like a burned out star that lost its glow
Squandered years and wasted years
Fueled by guilt and fixed by all my fears
Spent all night walking through this house
An empty bed, I’m sleeping on the couch

It’s a cold song, an early morning song
I can see my breath and the melody is gone
It’s a cold song, an early morning song
It’s all I’ve got to keep this body warm

Sing, sing a sad song
O’re the way our bodies carry on
It’s a cold song
An early morning song
It’s a cold song
An early morning song

It’s a cold song, an early morning song
I can see my breath and the melody is gone
It’s a cold song, an early morning song
It’s all I’ve got to keep this body warm
I’m keeping time with the shaking of my bones
I’m on my face praying, God just take me home

Sing, sing a sad song
O’re the way our bodies carry on
It’s a cold song
An early morning song
It’s a cold song
An early morning song
We sing.

about

Dustin Drennen Noxon, montana

Songs and poems from western Montana: a little folk and americana, a little Texas country, maybe more cowpunk, clear love of the West, especially the Northwest, an affinity for good beer, some romance and wreckage, some creepy tales, a general distrust for the establishment, a hopeful outlook all the same. ... more
