lyrics

They say it gets cold up here around this
time of the year, early February
I try to get somethin right every once in a while

Now listen here 'cause I got somethin to say
there's a place I call home and it's so far away now
I'm tryin to get somethin right every once in a while

Though I know I'll find my way back again
to every place I ever been
and I'll go whenever the time begins
to fold in on itself
to open up and let the memories melt
back into the here and now
To take me back again
to pickle me up and let the light come in
at the end of the day before it's gone away

They say it gets cold up here
around this time of the year
I try to get somethin right every once in a while

The land I'm from is called the U.S.A.
and I'm here for now but I'm not here to stay, no
I'm tryin to get somethin right every once in a while

And I know that when the time's ripe we'll go down
and step across the border to Mexico
and I think of all of the other reasons
to hold you in my arms
to listen to your heart beat out my thoughts
and carry me home to you
To take me back again
to pickle you up and let the light come in
at the end of the day before it's gone away

They say it gets cold up here
around this time of the year...
