Andy never had a father who was anywhere nearby,
and when he was and Andy asked him things, he couldn't get him to reply.

So Andy taught himself the things that thought he might ought to know,
And when he talks about the winter time, he says, "I understand the snow."

Andy left his small hometown. He went to college and he majored in art history.
Now he lives in a canvas world as a docent in a gallery.

Andy speaks aesthetically. He can quantify the beautiful.
But he can hardly feel inside so he just does what's dutiful.

July's tendency's to freeze whenever she's confronted.
She's borne so many losses that her senses have been blunted.

She learned about death and dying when she was only six years old.
Since then every one she meets seems a little cold.

She's tried to change herself by being a good lover
But every time she finds someone good, he leaves her cause he says she smothers.

She lost count a year ago when she was living in West Virginia.
The last one never even told her it was over, in fact as he left, he said,
"I got a ring I'm gonna send ya."

And I used to bathe in tears at night cause I felt like I was on my own.
I used to thinkI would never be completely known.

I used to hold on tightly to the sorrows that I owned.
But they were all I knew; they had run me through,
and they had left me
they had left me all alone.

I used to pray every day that God would mend what's torn.
Now I see the only way is to die...
to die...
and be reborn.

I have finally found a way to live
in the presence of the Lord
