lyrics

Bracing myself for the winter chill,
Riding alone in the dark
At least I was prepared then for every day feeling the same
Hiding myself in the summer heat,
Breathing the bad air at home,
Closing things down for the season that never came

Holding onto the branches in gold streetlight glow,
Holding on for so long as we sway to and fro,
Holding onto this world, though it's cruel, please be soft,
Help my grip; keep us from falling off!

Saving my words for another day,
I bury my thoughts in the haze,
Not knowing if I'd ever have something useful to say
Now I'm checking off every box on time,
Waiting for something to give,
Wondering every second, can this be okay?

Holding onto the branches in gold streetlight glow,
Holding on for so long as we sway to and fro,
Holding onto this world, though it's cruel, please be soft,
Help my grip; keep us from falling off!

Holding onto the branches in gold streetlight glow,
Holding on for so long as we sway to and fro,
Holding onto this world, though it's cruel, please be soft,
Help my grip; keep us from falling off!
