lyrics

We watched the snow on Christmas Eve before I even knew your name
You asked if I had any place to be when I was about to do the same
A Patron Saint, passed over us I swear I saw his smile
I buttoned my coat, and offered by hand, and felt like a child

We walked to Nicollet Island and threw rocks at a distant tree
You told me you were always good at playing make believe
So I played the trombone in your brass band we had our own re-birth
Just takes a night like this to fall in love with the world

Some connections never end
I know I won’t see you again but we’ll always be what-could-of-been friends

You mentioned your dad and the bad luck he had when he turned fifty
You said it’s good to really know someone even if only briefly
No tears in your eyes you were so matter of fact talked of life’s unpredictable track
We used to be so confused we still are we’re just more relaxed

The snow was crisp beneath our feet Grain Belt in the air
Your eyes made me feel so naked in the night that we shared
We saw the same shows in the nineties missed the days of going steady
We cried about all the senseless shit from Philando to Freddie

Some connections never end
I know I won’t see you again but we’ll always be what-could-of-been friends

For that one moment in time everything felt alright
The circus in the west of my mind was finally quiet

Some connections never end
I know I won’t see you again but we’ll always be what-could-of-been friends
