Winter Coats, and Some Songs I Wrote

Eleanor Landsbaum I found Winter Coats... by accident. However, falling in love with it was not an accident at all. Winter Coats, however short it might be, got me through many long nights of studying and writing my senior year of high school. The album on repeat and nothing else in the world but me, music, and my assignment. The masterfully played guitar paired with a raw and mournful voice sets my soul on fire. The lyrics get me in a way that not many do. The description on the page as "night music" just fits. Favorite track: Alaska.

Track Name: Alaska
I've given up, this year,
on rationality,
all my friends are singing sad songs
and you're not singing along with me,
and the songs I wrote
when I was only eighteen seemed
way too understated
all I wish is you'd have stayed here
for me.

So I wrote down something that might help me cure the pain,
I wrote down something that might help me cure the pain,
Lately I won't lie, I've started to feel the strain.
I wrote down something that might help me cure the pain.

Is it Alaska I'm looking for?
Or just my sanity and nothing more,
Since you said that you were going to leave
whats to believe in anymore?

And its time the tale were told,
of how you took a man and made him cold
and how her hands were dreams too small to hold me.
Track Name: Winter Coats
Winter is coming soon
I can feel it in the cold,
this is the sixth year in a row
I'm by the fireplace on my own.

and my beer drunk soul is sadder than all the dead Christmas trees in the world
and my tar-filed lungs misses the girl I loved in the summer
when I was younger.

I'm looking back on all the mistakes
I've made this year;
out the front of the Palladium
where you told me you loved me,
And I placed your hand in mine
in the central London sky
in backstreets of Aldgate East
when you said not to leave you

and my rotten bones miss that scarlet girl I used to kiss
and maybe this winter things won't be the same
but I doubt they'll change
I doubt they'll change.
Track Name: Stronger Shoulder
I've been thinking of her lately
as I always do
when I lose
hope,

cos she proved
It was worth leaving behind
a minor life
for grander maybes
and it helped me cope,

why is it that you get a happy ending?
why is it you get what I don't?

you're in my bed
but I'm not sleeping,
I feel not colder outside,
On this winters night
I live with this curse
but for every bad there is a worse.

why is it that you get a happy ending?
why is it you get what I don't?

but for me, lonely and free
you must've met a man with a stronger shoulder than me

so for me, lonely but free
you must've met a man with a stronger shoulder than me
Track Name: Pebbles and Shells
Do you remember when we met?
I was sat all alone,
now I'm back where I started
with ice in my bones.

Smoke in my eyes
from the bridges I've burned
but they give me no warmth in and at night
the clock hands tick in time
but no ones here
no ones here for me.

I am a hermit crab
inside a broken shell,
the only home I've got doesn't fit me so well
there's no one here to break the silence
to here the stories I would like to tell
I would like to tell.

I skip stones on an empty pool
my heart skips a beat every time my phone rings
in the hope that its you
but it never is
I'm finding it so hard to deal with this

I know I've made my bed, but its too cold
too cold to lie in, so I fold
cos my hand is worthless, I've got too many jokers
and they're torn to me, cos I lost the riches I once had

I am a hermit crab
inside a broken shell,
the only home I've got doesn't fit me so well
there's no one here to break the silence
to here the one thing I should not have to tell
that I miss you

I miss you.
