LYRICS

Going to a town (Rufus Wainwright cover)
 
I’m going to a town that has already been burnt down
I’m going to a place that has already been disgraced
I’m gonna see some folks who have already been let down
I’m so tired of America
 
I’m gonna make it up for all of The Sunday Times
I’m gonna make it up for all of the nursery rhymes
They never really seem to want to tell the truth
I’m so tired of you, America
 
Making my own way home
Ain’t gonna be alone
I’ve got a life to lead, America
I’ve got a life to lead
 
Tell me, do you really think you go to hell for having loved?
Tell me, enough of thinking everything that you’ve done is good
I really need to know, after soaking the body of Jesus Christ in blood
I’m so tired of America 
 
Making my own way home
Ain’t gonna be alone
I’ve got a life to lead, America
I’ve got a life to lead
I’m so tired of America
 

Under the snow
Here I endure the winter
Waiting for your return
Here, deep down in the dark
I rest my tired heart

I am too tired to sleep, too cold to move on
And follow you back into the gleam
So I lay under the snow
Where love cannot grow
Will someone please unfreeze this water?
The snow is playing its trick
Footsteps I cannot read
Here deep down in the dark
I rest my tired eyes

They are too blind to see and I’m too weak to move on
And follow you back into the gleam
So I lay under the snow
Where love cannot grow
Will someone please unfreeze this water?

Follow you back
Back into the gleam
I’ll follow you back
Back into the gleam…

Blanket of sorrow

It’s cold out here this Christmas
One pair of eyes is missing
Are you still there or are you at all?

We all know there are still tomorrows
We all know the blanket of sorrow
Are you still there are you at all?

I can see the open space
Can you hear me calling?
I cannot hear your voice

but I remember the laughter

I would give all that I have

just to be with you

It’s cold out here this Christmas
One pair of eyes is missing

We all know there are still tomorrows

We all know the blanket of sorrow

Are you still there are you at all?
