7. Bitter Wind

Oh, oh, it’s a bitter wind that blows
It’s a bitter wind that blows you back my way
All the miles in between, now and used to be
Aren’t enough to shield me from this cold

All the guilt on my shoes, all the times I have not used
All the time I have not used has slipped away
All the scheming and the tears, come howlin’ back through the years
They come howlin’ back through the years, like they’re here to stay

Did you keep me in your sight, did you hunt me through the night
Did you follow all the crumbs I left behind
Did the blood and the gore tip you off, make you sure
Make you sure that I really wouldn’t mind

‘Cause I’m just too weak to do anything but sleep
To do anything at all would mean a choice
Will I run, will I freeze, will I crumble to my knees
I will crumble as you embrace me so hard

And the gnawin’ at the door, I can’t stand it anymore
I can’t stand to know it will eat its way inside
And then, once it’s in, the end will begin
The end will begin with a sigh

Oh, oh, it’s a bitter wind that blows
It’s a bitter wind that blows you back my way
