Christmas won't save you
You can't wait yourself out
Hope you just need your break from things
You feel safer in the dark
But this will not save you
Find the light on a pastoral road
It stands as a testament
Things don't get better alone
Without time and deliberation

Springtime won't save you
The smell nor the snowmelt sound
Try excited and warm again
Make sure you're getting around
But new friends won't save you
And the rain-mist on my face
Sees what's worth the dwelling on
And what must be dismissed
Through time and deliberation
