lyrics

Driven Like the Snow
By Andrew Eldrige

Still night, nothing for miles

White curtain come down
Kill the lights in the middle of the road
And take a, take a look around
It don't help to be one of the chosen

One of the few to be sure

When the wheels are spinning around

And the ground is frozen through

And you're driven like the snow

Pure in heart,
Driven together


And given away to the west

A white dress but still the river don't run
A black dress looking like mine

'Til the sun don't shine no more

Where the sky meet the ground

Where the street fold round
Where the voice you hold don't make no sound

Look snow on the river and two by two

Took a lot to live, a lot like you,

I don't
Go there now, but I hear they sung their
'Fuck Me And Marry Me Young'

Some wild idea and a big white bed, now

You know better than that, I said


Like a voice in the wind blow little crystals down
More like brittle things will break before they turn

Like a lipstick on my cigarette

And the ice get harder overhead

Like think it twice but never, never learn

And the mist will wrap around us

And the crystal, if you touch it


And the cars lost in the drift are there

And the people that drive lost in the drift are there
And the cares I've lost in the drift are there

Theirs, ours, lost in the drift are
