lyrics

I spy with my little eye
clouds walking to a grave.

I’ll try—I said, I’ll try
to stop a tidal wave.

Call the operator
she’s got to know—
I’m going to stop the snow.

When I’m with you,
I see the world in an icicle.
When I’m with you,
we stop in a town called impossible.

Call the philosophers,
let’s give their pens some trouble.
Call the philosophers,
lets have a love that makes them uncomfortable.

The weather aint easy—
the weather aint enough
of a reason to give up.
I’ll strike a match—
lets bless what gets tough.

I spy with my little eye
clouds walking to a grave.
