in the Snowfall (i was designed)

lyrics

i don't want to stay here forever
i just want to make right my mind

a reverie of wasted hours

looking back.

things i know are superstitions
i still think of them as mine

"the water's soft," you said "let's get in."
looking back.

in the snowfall i was designed
in the snowfall i was designed
designed
designed by you
a snowflake
when my little backwards words back out of here, you'll see.

the sense
from the second i saw you
was that I'd be persuaded
to renegotiate
the feeling of reason flying
like a blind pig

i wish i had written down the whole dream
so when it happened i'd be more prepared
to think, at the last, i AM a Lady
I ain't no
rubberband.

in the snowfall
i was designed
in the snowfall
i was designed
designed
spelling little letters backward, sometimes
there is a pattern here, it's drowning in philosophy

when my little backwards words back out of here, you'll see.

"If i have made any intricate imperfect things
chiefly which wrong your mind
songs less firm than your body's song
upon my mind
Let the world say, let the world say
what it will and all"
how fragile yet frosty a thing
is the one designed in the snow fall.
