The Ice is Getting Thinner

  • We're not the same, dear, as we used to be
    The seasons have changed and so have we
    There was little we could say, and even less we could do
    To stop the ice from getting thinner under me and you

    We bury our love in the wintery grave
    A lump in the snow was all that remained
    But we stayed by its side as the days turned to weeks
    And the ice kept getting thinner with every word that we'd speak

    And when spring arrived
    We were taken by surprise when the floes under our feet bled into the sea
    And nothing was left for you and me

    We're not the same, dear
    And it seems to me
    There's nowhere we can go
    With nothing underneath
    And it saddens me to say
    But we both know, well, it's true
    That the ice was getting thinner
    Under me and you
    The ice was getting thinner
    Under me and you Writer/s: BENJAMIN GIBBARD
