saturday mornings a boy walks down three blocks to Paradise
there’s a table by the window
good coffee and a waitress he kind of likes
he takes off his jacket and watches the dawn pass him by
the streetlights are frozen
that’s how you know you’re in
Paradise

he’s lived in this city a year and a half, going on two
but faces on sidewalks and subways
look strange as the day he moved
from streets lined with live oaks that never were covered in ice
well, the heater is good
it’s as warm as it should be in
Paradise

there’s a girl who he sees every once and a while when loneliness strikes
he meets her in cafés, in subways
at his apartment some nights
but he feels funny seeing her face by the morning light
so he faces the strange snow to
sit in the warm glow at
Paradise

Yes you must.
Yeah, actually with this one, you really do. The piano and melody and notes are of extreme importance.

Yes, they are. Quite right you were.
Excellent new song.
