                [verse 1]

     D                    G
Lo and behold your mother is drinking again.
     D                            G
This might be the coldest winter since records began.
     D                                   G
You were a lone moon steady with wintry cold,
     D                                   G
Leading the children softly across the fold.

[verse 2 - same]
Each morning you'd march your sisters like soldiers to school,
Cause lo and behold your father had drunk all the fuel.
You are a lone moon steady with wintry cold,
Somewhere inside the fire of your youth went dark.


 Em                                               D
But you swear blind, there is no weight in the water pail.
 Em                                               D
You say, "My love, you take the cards that you're dealt."
 Em                                               D
Cause there's no guiding light arching a line to Bethlehem.
 Em                                         D
If it's dark outside you light the fire yourself.


Darlin' when the ice caps melt,
When the devil's in the bible belt,
Don't cower in your bed.
I'll be on the 5-4-5,
You can meet me at the railway line,
Don't look so scared.

 Bm                                                       D
Cause we've been through worse than this before we could talk.
 Em                                    D
The trick of it is, don't be afraid anymore.
        Em                               D
Oh the trick of it is, don't be afraid anymore.
