gentle and sideways i turn down my words
cause you were coming my way and it cut me in thirds
and i think most likely you got what i inferred
with the snow falling lightly everything can be heard

*it was childish and mean but i had to see
while the crystals melted off your warm red face
that you were still you, you were still you…*

gentle and sideways you walked away
i said it's my way of playing a game
then you said oh why play when something remains
and i said that's why babe cause i feel the same

gentle and sideways competition ensued
it ended at my place and we discussed all the rules
i started to unlace and unravel my cool
i showed you how i paid from acting a fool

not long ago we found it absurd playing with words
not long ago the snow didn’t fall but melted and stalled
and for all we know it was there all a long empty but strong
and for all we know it can't bend or break and is there when we wake
