Teardrops and Elephants

lyrics

V1:
It was white, but with my pen turned black
all my words just fell right through the cracks
and what I knew a long long time ago,
Was sinking like a teardrop in the snow.
In the snow, in the snow, sinking like a teardrop in the snow
What I knew a long long time ago, was sinking like a teardrop in the snow.

V2:
and underneath, my words were found
never heard, no they never made a sound
and what I wrote a long long time ago,
stayed quiet in the cold dark dirt below

CH: (DAE) (twice)
Yesterday, yesterday, I kind of knew your name and kind of knew my way.
But that's slipping under beams, way way down below.

V3 :
Simple needs, planted seeds
Grow up fast and cycle on their own
What I grew a long, long time ago,
was sinking like an elephant in the snow.
In the snow, in the snow. It was sinking like an elephant in the snow.
What I grew a long long time ago, was sinking like an elephant in the snow.

V4 :
Favorite spots, partial thoughts
Survival terms, while some things were forgot
What I saw, a long long time ago,
was drifting like a northern mountain snow.

CH: (twice)
Yesterday, yesterday, I kind of knew your name and kind of knew my way.
But that's slipping under beams, way way down below.
