Lyrics[edit | edit source]

When I ask you to look at me 
You look away
I ask you to tell me something nice once
You come at me with all your hot lights on display
I know you're changing
Damn you
I know you're changing
Goddamn you for that
When the snow stacked up outside
You looked around
I could see you from the window
I could see the snow coming down
I know you're changing
Damn you
I know you're changing
Goddamn you

Comments by John Darnielle About this Song[edit | edit source]

  • "This is another song about a tender, loving, equitable relationship based on faith and trust that goes to hell." -- 1997-03-xx - New York University - New York, NY
  • "I feel bad. I feel good, but I feel bad because a fellow just thanked me for some kind and good qualities, so I should play a song about desperate people in desperate situations that aren't going to get better because I make them worse. This was on 'Sweden'." -- 2017-11-11 - Union Transfer - Philadelphia, PA
