    I've been waiting for you to come back
    Since you left Minneapolis
    Snow covers the streetlamps and the windowsills
    The buildings and the brittle crooked trees
    Dead leaves of December
    Thin skinned and splintered
    Never gotten used to this bitter winter

    I've been wasted, angry and sad
    Since you left Minneapolis
    I wish my thoughts were pure like the driven snow
    Like the heavens and the spring's virgin buds
    But they strangle me with their sin
    Fill me up with poison
    Black clouds have covered up the sun again

    I can always trace it back
    To that night in Minneapolis
    Here on the seventh floor in a room I can't call mine
    Deadbolt on the door, do not disturb sign
    Shaking and trembling
    On the clean white linen
    Slivers of starlight across the ceiling

    A dozen yellow roses
    All that's left in Minneapolis
    I wish I'd never seen your face or heard your voice
    You're a bad pain in my gut
    I want to spit you out
    Open up this wound again
    Let my blood flow red and thin
    Into the glistening
    Into the whiteness
    Into the melting snow of Minneapolis
