I took your letter and put it in the oven
Turned up the heat to 500 degrees
Just before I burned the house down
I put out the fire in the kitchen sink

Oh, your words had me speeding on the highway
How far can I go
with my eyes closed
Come winter you said
We’d see each other warm

I would drive into
those flashing lights
far away
dotted on the mountain side

But somewhere between
blue and white
Like the snow
I start to fly

And the car goes 180
but I’m not changing
I’m still thinking of you
You spin and you stop
and convince yourself into awe
Then try your best to get out, get out


from The Heart Will Jump (With Nowhere to Fall), released October 19, 2016
