​silver seconds

[Verse 1]

Mitten in the snow

Angels in a row

My turn to place them

On the piano

Sweating through our coats

Blushing on the nose

We didn’t know it

There in that moment
[Chorus 1]

That everyone’s together in that moment of your life

Frozen in a snow globe, spin so slowly like you’re stuck in time, ah-ah, ah

When everyone’s together in that moment of your life

All the tiny changes, pile up until you’re snowed inside

[Verse 2]

You know I get cold

Moved away from home

Ran from the winter

I’m still your sister

Getting on the plane

Showing signs of age

Creased where we’ve smiled

I’m still your child[Chorus 2]

And everyone’s together for a moment just today

Hold yourself together for a bit, before it slips away, ah-ah, ah, ah

When everyone’s together for a moment just today

Let each silver second settle on your tongue and melt away, ayy, ayy, ah-ah, ah, ah

Ah, ah-ah

Ah, ah, ah, ah[Outro]

Ring around the year

End up right back here
