about

I traded this song for a scarf and gloves. I had seen on facebook that Carly was learning to knit, and offered the trade - one song for some knitted goods. The transaction took two years to complete on both ends. The song my most self-aware, literally chronicling the swap of goods for song.

lyrics

You knit me gloves and I’ll write you this song
Oh its been to long
And though I’m still cynical I thank technology for bringing you back to me

Flimsy it fall to the wayside so fast
I want to know
Where did you go
Left all alone just to freeze off my ass
The song goes unsung
The knitting undone
Thank goodness the summer is nigh

I look through the window
Just to see your face floating far way
Many days have passed since I checked last

And though summer was sweet
I know that the heat
Will depart as autumn comes

I could use another scarf to keep from the cold
I wanna know
Where did you go
I’ve got my side of our deal to uphold
The song goes unsung
The knitting undone
I wish that the sun would return.

Ca – rly, I don’t want to be impatient,
But, I have the tendency to be com-pla-cent
I let things slide though I’ve tried all along
my routine set aside just to finish the bridge to the song.
