lyrics

The snow fell on Halloween
So we took to the streets
And just for the evening no one could tell
Who was real and who was kidding anymore
The city never sleeps
But I feel so tired lately
I’ve been pinching myself for days
Now I can’t stay awake
And in this dream I keep having I just never seem to recover

The storm’s coming in
From the looks of it, it’s gonna be a bad one
And the snow’s gonna stick
Why don’t we stick it out ‘til the summer comes?

Wake up, wake up
What are you waiting for, my brother?
Get yourself out of bed and put one foot
In front of the other
And things will get better now

The sidewalks started to freeze
So we took to the streets
And just for the evening no one could blame us
For slipping up the avenue
We were too wired to sleep
But I haven’t felt that way lately
I’ve been dragging my feet for days
Yeah I can’t stay awake
And in this dream I keep having I just stay like this forever

The cold’s coming in
From the looks of it, it’s gonna be a long one
And the wind’s gonna whip
Why don’t we shake it out ‘til the summer comes?

'Cause how could it get any worse than it's been?
For the last few months I've been living just like I am dead

So here’s that hopeful song to sing when all you got is going wrong
And I know it hurts like hell, but we’re gonna heal up, we’re gonna move on
And here’s that hopeful song you know I’ve been working for years on
When the wind’s gonna whip, we’ll just shake it out ‘til the summer comes
It’s gonna come…

Wake up, wake up now
It’s gonna come right back around now

about

Man in a Crowd New York, New York

We love making music and playing shows. We’re not that fond of writing third-person biographies and comparing our sound to a synthesis of indistinguishable post-genres. We hope our songs will get your feet stomping, your knees knocking, and your heart pounding – because that’s what they do for us. ... more
