from Elephant Angelfish, released February 29, 2012
Gabriel, you never warned me
About all the dangers of letting them watch you leave

You used words so long, I couldn't say them
Somehow they still sounded good when you'd sing
My muffled screaming in your shoulder
You told me the best things all bring relief

But your black eyes against a milky sky
And the banks of snow are five feet high
My tears freeze before they leave my eyes
And I just miss being able to cry

Gabriel, you never told me
How many lips you had kissed before you met me

When you've got nothing it's so cold here
But I couldn't sleep beneath your wings
It's just too hard to breathe there
Knowing you'd rather lose me than accept defeat

But your black eyes against a milky sky
And the banks of snow are twelve feet high
My tears freeze before they leave my eyes
And I just miss being able to cry

I've really leaving, I'm leaving tonight
To Rome or Las Vegas, away from this ice
Those who followed you will lead you to die
And a smile will fall across your face in the night
