lyrics

Sit in the green grass
Dew in your doey eyes
Holding that ripped shirt
What a surprise
You keep it like a secret
Everywhere you go
Tell me does it keep you warm
From the Halifax snow

Don't stop calling now, my dear
You've found me out

No one stays the same
This I am told
But it's one thing to know
And another to grasp or hold
So keep yourself a secret
From everyone you know
Tell me who keeps you warm
From the Halifax snow

Don't stop calling now, my dear
You've found me out

As I boarded the plane, all I could think about was the mess that I was leaving behind me. Short bursts of apologetic speeches left unmade clanged around the edges of my mind like a rusty coin in an old dryer. You once said to me that as we grow older we start to leave pieces of ourselves everywhere we go. Looking out along the wing I can feel portions missing from my quickly sodiating body. Montreal and Eygalieres both took limbs from us, from me - there is no more us. Us has been laid to rest without any bits left to take, buried hastily under the pavement on Coburg Road. We're taking off now and I can't help but start to cry. I know I'll never see those parts of myself again - of us, of me. We're in the air now and with the wings of a giant metal bird I'm gone, gone, far, far away for a long, long time. An opportunity wasted. I felt my side and realized another piece was missing. Lying lifeless at the front of the cabin invisible to all eyes save those that lay beneath lenses of salt water, mourning their own corporeal losses. It must have fallen off as I boarded the plane...
