lyrics

It was night and the summer was ending
You were singing that same Townes song
And if I needed you, well I did, it's true
So we danced like nothing could move
It spun around so careless and new

You arrived as a dove in winter
Flying fast, your feathers on
You and me down a road, just a hanging on
I didn't know then what I would do
I hit the ground when I found you

Held on to
Held on through
Held on felled on
My eyes just staring at my shoes
Whiskey and afternoon blues

It was day and the bourbon was sending
I was singing a Guy Clark song
Like a coat from the cold, we were silver and gold
I didn't know then what I'd fell into
I lost me about to lose you

It was night and the movie was ending
It was summer and winter and fall
In the front of your car, just a waitin' on
The words I wouldn't say to you
Both our hearts just a breakin' in two

Held on to
Held on through
Held on felled on
It was the holding that I couldn't do
Gone away, same as you

Held on to
Held on through
Held on felled on
My eyes just staring at my shoes
Whiskey and afternoon blues
