_____

ask me in December

when your stories are over told

and your coffee's growing cold

and the bread has turned to stone

you're still my treasure

_____

ask me in December

if the sun still shines like new

though the bills have all coming due

and our friends are much too few

my love knows better

_____

ask me in December

to rest and warm your feet

when the whisky tastes of peat

and there's nowhere else to be

but here together

_____

ask me in December

to wash away the dirt

to give life back to earth

to grant you what you're worth

our souls together

_____

ask me in December

for there's no storm I'd not weather

not a soul has given better

you're my heart, and that's forever

ask me, ask me in December
