Take my hand
hold it in your warm hand
And I’ll hold onto you as the winter comes
This is not
exactly what we had planned
time moves slowly and we’re still here where we’re from

Sweeping pine
needles from the wood floor
Come January - it’s the worst time of the year
towels stuffed
underneath the front door
to keep the cold out for me and Jack and Lu and you in here

I would not trade
I would not trade (it's easy to say)

We could be
out there in some beach house
the kids come running in with handfuls full of sand
Or maybe not
maybe we are travellers
We’ve got no family yet and all of the time in the world

With our backpacks worn right through
baby me and you
could have wound somewhere better than this old place
she was built in 55
but we’re keeping her alive
through a decade’s worth of winters
while we’re growing strong as timbers

would not trade
(it's easy to say)
