notes:
 it took a night so cold
wind ripped through the clothes
hanging on the line
cuz last week was like springtime
it took a pole of iron
miles and miles of wire
until the street went dark
from the highway to the park
sometimes we take our turns
singing out our words
speaking out our notes
and let them fly like smoke
it took a harmless man
with broken, bloody hands
it took a day so black
to show me the way back
you had a fitful sleep
of missed opportunity
woke with a nothing sound
silence all around
it took a blacked out block
the frozen hands of clocks 
cool river in your dream
crossing carefully
I wanted to be no one
hidden in the sun
shameful and unclean
needed to be seen
it took a night so cold
wind ripped through the clothes
hanging on the line
cuz last week it was springtime.
