Lyrics

February Thaw
© 2010 Nelson Wright

I’m just waiting for a February thaw,
I’ve been waiting for a month now and it hasn’t come at all.
What can a poor man do, what can a poor man do.

When all he wants is you, and he feels it all day long,
The feeling comes in rhythms, and he tries to make a song.
But every melody he sings, testifies to his longing for the spring.

I’m just waiting for a February thaw,
I’ve been waiting for a month now and it hasn’t come at all.
What can a poor man do, what can a poor man do.

When all he wants to see, is your face between his hands,
He thinks about it often, still he fails to understand.
For all the times that he’s tried a new key,
You’re still frozen in that same harmony.

I’m still waiting for a February thaw,
I’ve been waiting for a month now and it hasn’t come at all.
What can a poor man do, what can a poor man do.

When all he really is, is someone that’s been alone,
He knows your heart is frozen, and hopes it isn’t made of stone.
But every day his hopes are further out of time,
As the sun shines cold and the rain falls dry.

I keep waiting for a February thaw,
I’ve been waiting for a month now and it hasn’t come at all.
What can a poor man do, what can a poor man do.
