air of december lyrics – edie brickell

thursday afternoon
you cast a shadow ’round my room
the breeze moved the curtains
and lifted my perfume into the air
and danced with lazy curls in your hair
the sun was in the sky like pink champagne
and it glistened in your eyes all day

i remember you put a chill across my face
like the air of december, i swear i remember it that way
i swear i remember it that way
i swear i remember it

where are you now?
where are you now?
where are you now?

you stood by the lake
i wanted to take you for granted
the gr*ss was thin and high
the water mirrored tiny sparkles to the sky

i remember you put a chill across my face
like the air of december, i swear i remember it that way
i swear i remember it that way
i swear i remember it

where are you now?
where are you now?
where are you now?

in the by-myself mornings
the birds windchime
the treelimbs crackle
and the sunshine climbs up the sky
like the pink champagne that glistened in your eyes all day

i remember you put a chill across my face
like the air of december, i swear i remember it that way
i swear i remember it that way
i swear i remember it

where are you now?
where are you now?
where are you now?
