about

Just your classic 'lover leaves in the middle of a snowstorm', dominant 7 verse - major 7 chorus kind of thing. It's a Rolling Stones meet Todd Rundgren dealio, but I credit Frank Sinatra for the "do-bee do-bee dum" bridge.

lyrics

There was snow on the ground the day you split
and the wind blew around like an argument
I followed up your tracks to the frozen lake
and I prayed you'd be there for your own sake

How long have you been gone? I don't know

But I can't get myself out of this bed
and I can't get your words out of my head
I can't find a way to a fresh start
until I get you out of my heart
out of my heart

All my friends did their best to cheer me up
but a bottle of Jack wasn't near enough
and I pity (not "pretty") every single woman
who came after you
There ain't no talkin' sense to this shipwreck dude

How long 'til you are gone? I don't know no no no

But I can't get to sleep without being numb
and I can't start the day without Coke & rum
I can't write myself into a new part
until I get you out of my heart
out of my heart
out of my heart
out of my heart

[bridge]

How long 'til I am gone? I don't know-- I just don't know

I can't get myself out of this bed
and I can't get your words out of my head
I can't find a way to a fresh start
until I get you out of my heart

I can't get to sleep without being numb
and I can't start the day without Coke & rum
I can't write myself into a new part
until I get you out of my heart
out of my heart
out of my heart
out of my heart
out of my heart
out of my heart
