Bones broke in half

A stain on my shirt

From a couple hours out with the boys

And all good things come to an end

Only God and my baby      would know

I'm sure she'd be laughing, come during spring

With some fella who just said the right thing

See all I can do is think about you

And miss all your kisses like the spring
E
But if I had a sign
                                                Dsus4
That one day you'd be mine again, oh no
F#m                                   Bm     A
If I could hold you right then

As the chill in this season sputtered and spit and died with...

Blood on my teeth
F#m
From just what they did here
A
Snow tumbling down on the ground
F#m
And me stumbling out of my heart
A (Diminuendo)
Finding cherry blossoms on the hood of my car
