He talks about jobs and he talks about lines
He says, “It’s just a matter of time, babe, just a matter of time.”
But all the while it’s getting cold outside
So I put my stockings on
I feel it getting cold outside

I feel this shaking frustration
This place has started chafing
The skin on the backs of my legs

The bitter winter wind has blown
But I’ve no coat to keep me warm
And so his melancholy tones
Leeched into my bones

He talks about jobs and he talks about lines
And he talks about love that never dies
But we’ve both grown cold
He knows we’ve both grown cold
I’ve grown cold

The clouds are so thick and so concrete
And I’ve been too long under them
In this hungover street
The stars have forgotten me

Wendy, wonder more
You don’t find what you don’t look for
You don’t find what you don’t ask for
