Lyrics


Spring Thaw
(Polly Edwards)

It's never too late, or too early, to change your mind, you know.

first day of march
first day of april
first day of scissors
the last of the staples

the first time out in the wind
of the desert heat
burning out fires within

Polly

it's the first time fighting the good fight
and the last time you might

soldier, won’t you come home
soldier halfway around the world
like the spring thaw
you’re already halfway into the ground

it’s a new man
kicking the can
walking through wires
and claiming he ran

it’s a new man
wants to straighten his stance
but pennies are pennies
it’s dollars to dance

it’s a new man fighting the good fight
and the last time he might

soldier, won’t you come home
soldier halfway around the world
like the spring thaw
you’re already halfway into the ground

it’s the first time
for a new man
fighting the good fight
to run while he can

it’s the first time
it’s the first time
it’s the first time
and you’re already halfway into the ground
