oh tamaracks are leaning back
in silent sentinel

they stretch their arms around the farms
branches dipped in gold

and you and me are only people
walking down the road

fighting off the cold

a mack truck pulls a flatbed full
of logs that rattle by

us sitting off the shoulder now
it splits the yellow line

doesn’t seem to see us
doesn’t even dim its brights

just red rectangle taillights
punching through the night

and oh now hold me close
don’t let go

oh i know i know you’re leaving me
empty hands and no reply

oh it sucks to say goodbye

the timberwolves are circling
their breath in little puffs

padding down the needles
through the downy underbrush

while pups are nestled warm
against their mothers in the duff

they got em by the scruff

we used to sleep like that
a couple worn in puzzle pieces

wrapped up in the flags of youth
naive and still believing in

the possibilities
hey are they even out there still

caught between your golden dreams
and the impossible


but if you can
you should

do some good
oh we try and we try

and we try


oh now hold me close
closer so

oh i don’t want to lose you baby

empty hands
and no reply

it sucks to say goodbye
