lyrics

one of us leaving a coffee ring
one of us leaving the dog inside
if it gets that hard

one of us is long gone
the other’s leaning a long back
up against the wall
if it gets that hard then i’m sure

and i get just a ribbon of line
some wine cork and a net

plucking the line of your hickory bow
pulling for sport, for wild mice
for doves
couldn’t love you more

one of us is lying low
the other’s leading a warm light
up against the snow
if it gets that hard then i’ll go
