The Tip of the Iceberg

Album: Ocean Eyes (2009)
  • Welcome back
    Winter once again
    And put on your warm fuzzy sweater
    Cause you'll feel much better when

    The snowflakes fall
    Gently to the ground
    The temperature drops
    And your shivers freeze all the rivers around
    But I keep you warm

    If speed's a pro
    Inertia must be a con
    Cause the cold wind blows at precise rates
    When I've got my ice skates on

    If all the roads
    Were paved with ice that wouldn't thaw or crack
    I could skate from Maine to Nebraska
    Then on to Alaska and back
    Cause you keep me warm

    Peer over the edge
    Can you see me?
    Rivulets flow from your eyes
    Paint runs from your mouth
    Like a waterfall
    And your lungs crystallize

    I'll travel the sub-zero tundra
    I'll brave glaciers and frozen lakes
    And that's just the tip of the iceberg
    I'll do whatever it takes
    To change

    Farewell powdery paradise
    We'd rather skate on the thinnest ice
    Fingers failed us before they froze
    Frostbite bit down on all our toes

    Snow drifts build up and enfold us
    As we wait out this winter storm
    So we snuggle close in the darkness
    And keep each other so warm Writer/s: ADAM R. YOUNG
