And if the snow buries my, my neighborhood
And if my parents are crying
Then I'll dig a tunnel from my window to yours
Yeah, a tunnel from my window to yours

You climb out the chimney
And meet me in the middle, the middle of the town
And since there's no one else around
We let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know
Then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow

You change all the lead
Sleepin' in my head
As the day grows dim
I hear you sing a golden hymn

Then we tried to name our babies
But we forgot all the names that
The names we used to know

But sometimes we remember our bedrooms
And our parent's bedrooms and the bedrooms of our friends
Then we think of our parents
Well, what ever happened to them?

You change all the lead
Sleepin' in my head
As the day grows dim
I hear you sing a golden hymn
The song I've been trying to sing

Purify colors purify my mind
Purify color, purify my mind
Spread the ashes of the colors
In this heart of mine
