Icicles Lyrics - Patty Griffin

Review The Song (1)



Tonight
I sing soft and low
Just like the moon
Over the snow
I hear icicles falling in the dark

We're just like anyone else
We just want a little bit
Of sun for ourselves
And a little bit of rain
To make it all grow
Maybe a minute or two
To get lost in the glow of love

There's always someone throwing matches around
Waving the shiny new knife
The first to run when the house burns down
I've seen it everyday of my life
I must confess there appears to be
Way more darkness than light
I want to fall like a pearl
To the bottom of the sea
There no one will find us tonight

Tonight
It might look pretty bad
We might lose everything
We thought that we had
But shadows will pass
Smoke, it will clear
If something survives of us around here
I'll be glad 'cause I know
I was lost in the glow
Of love

Icicles review | Reviewer: George | 12/19/13

I believe this song was written on the first post 911 albumn Griffin made. One could only imagine frightening symbolism the falling icicles might represent. The terrorist waving his shiny new knife, running and hiding between each cowardly act. The hopelessness for those who thought they lost everything that day. But the sun's gonna shine and the smoke's gonna clear, if anything of us survives around here speaks for the victims for which so many aspects of their lives hadn't survived. And at the time they wondered if they could move forward after so much was taken from them. It's quite a song. I like it more each time I play it. And sadly, I recall that morning and the way I felt watching those people running for their lives in the street and hearing about the sound of bodies hitting the concrete.
