further north lyrics – jets to brazil

the road tonight is cold with ice
and no cars p*ss by
thank god for no phone calls
just snow and a fire

december endings and since you sent me things
i just feel further north
this year took ten years to
tell me that i’m alone again

everything here’s about to break
i’m one inch from more than i can take
and it’s beautiful and sad but it’s all that i have
so tonight let’s stay inside

i’ll be the husband with a book for the bride
tonight let’s stay inside

i could play guitar
i’ve got so many songs
that you’ve never heard, and they weren’t about you
and i won’t change a word just because you’re gone

the trees creak with their arthritic arms
brittle in their powdered bark
blue moonlight, i can’t cry right
but i miss you tonight

everything here’s about to break
i’m one inch from more than i can take
and it’s beautiful and sad but it’s all that i have
so tonight i’ll stay inside

there are things that i’d like to try with you but
i’ll stay inside
tonight i’ll stay inside
i could play guitar
