Lyrics:

January
(Music by Chris Gleason, Lyrics by Chris Gleason and Lucy Martinez)

Hazy afternoons
Adolescent cool
Walked the train tracks home from school
Wasted midnights
Nineteen ninety three
Separated you from me

Something bitter
Someone in between
Something missing, something mean
Broken promise
Heart hid up your sleeve
Was it ever within reach?

January, January

Cigarette, smoke, perfume
Ash of memory
Something burning underneath
So much time has passed
Not much left to see
But I'm thinking maybe

Cold and brittle
Sidewalk glistening
Baby, you and me
Broken promise
Heart hid up your sleeve
Was it ever within reach?

January, January

Hazy afternoon
Winter gray and bleak
Drive to meet you down the street
Train is distant sound
City not so sweet
Want to stay here, never sleep

Tell me all the lies
Keep me from leaving
Watch you when you turn from me
Broken promise
Heart hid up your sleeve
Was it ever within reach?

January, January, January, January
