Track Name: The Way You Like It to Snow (early 2010 demo)
oh darling, i've been waiting on you to go which way you want to go. we're shaking, but don't leave. don't shiver with me. i've been waiting on you, waiting on me. oh darling, i've been waiting on it to snow like you like to snow. you know i've been waiting on you to go which way you want to go.
Track Name: Bells Are Ringing
take all your photographs down, something that i could never do. bells are ringing. they all call you home. i fear i will do this on my own. the fireplace smokes like you with your cigars and carbine barrels, too. so many things i'd like to say. bells are ringing, Christmastime at home. i sit waiting by the telephone. a photograph to make you last, we know what we've got to say now. it's the end of the circus. a city where the signs light up your face. you are sleeping in redeeming grace. you are me, and i am you. Merry Christmas, my brother and my friend. i am sure that death is not the end. God is waiting for us all, we know.
