I had to come home to this old town
Full of my mother and terrible weather
It makes you like leather
And the salt wears you down
 
Down on Gottingen Street
Storefronts for lease
Us library lonelies hope no one’s looking
Our bodies like book-ends
The pages between us
Spines bent with need
At the needle exchange
 
I don’t have any change
For the lady who asks me
I’ve been walking for days
I had to come home
 
I had to come home to this old house
Full of my mother and terrible weather
I had to come down
To the rain in the kitchen
It keeps getting wetter
Why do we bother?
 
Christ didn’t drown
When he walked on the water
My mother kept saying
I had to come home
I had to come home
To the storms and the shovelling
Rosehips in Winter
Winter ’til June
 
I had to come home to this old body
Full of my mother and terrible weather
I had to come home
I had to come home
I had to come home
to get better
