lyrics

Burning the Furniture
We were burning the furniture to keep warm
We were learning that this life’s not our turn
I can’t hold you/I can’t hold you anymore

We were skating on ice so thin it cracked
You held my hand but not my back
And I told you, I told you, No more
This time of year when the trees turn
This time of year when the fire burns
I can’t hold you, I can’t hold you anymore

We were making a love across the land
We were singing like seagulls in the sand
I can’t hold you/I can’t hold you anymore
But I’m wishing you peace, I’m wishing you joy
I’m wishing you freedom from the noise
And I’ll love you, I‘ll love you no more

This time of year when the trees turn
This time of year when the fire burns
I can’t hold you/I can’t hold you anymore
We were burning the furniture to keep warm
