lyrics

You were up wearing something black
but your skin was tan
I'm glad you finally got your color back,
lovely

Your spirits high but your voice was hoarse
I'm glad to see the ugly imagery had finally gone and run its course
by the spring

Cause I know that life on trees will make things better
But nothing we know will ever bring it back
I feel the same in some canny way
but it's nostalgia at best
and it's fortunate at any rate

It was on some summer night
You went to Phoenix, Arizona
hoping somebody would steal your life
It's not that easy

Down by the river where the wind'll blow
you'll curl up heavily
and watch the never ending current go
and wash me up

But sometimes I still catch myself a memory
Sometimes they're blue but mostly you were right
The winter cold still chills me
I still love to see the spring
Fortunately, I took the bait
You were fortunate at any rate
You were still fortunate at any rate
