winter's she's a coming can't ya hear my heat pipes play
i pull tighter on my jacket while i wait on the j train
and i'll freeze off my fingers while i'm praying for rain
cause the time on my hands sure looks like she's gonna change

i wear my blue suit walking let the wind color my face
spend the night out on the east side with a woman twice my age
and in the morning i'll need coffee but i can't stand the taste
i'll have my head in my hands and my rent money to replace

so it's one more drink for those who think that no stones been unturned
but for those of us who know there must be somplace left on earth
to keep us high
we're gonna find it here

i never said i was a hero i only said i don't turn down fights
so unless you need a punching bag don't be leaving on your bedroom light
cause it'll only take one shot to put me down for the night
i'll have you're head in my hands but i'll still think i'm right

so what i gotta do babe what i gotta say to make you wanna run
my track record up to this point ain't nothing to be proud of
but if you got time
and i got time
let's give it a shot

i stumble home in the morning with the big rigs running south
winter's now turned to spring time and i think about what i found
and i ain't sure for nothing if i'm gonna be sticking around
i've got a bed and a lease on the other side of town
