Okkervil River Just Give Me Time Lyrics

[Verse 1]
This red-haired girl of mine tore a pinecone from the pine
To cut into her palm, singing the song her sinking lover sung
I shut my eyes, ripped the train from off the line
But a sudden gust of snow blew through a hole in my girl's clothes
Well, my girl knows she's not all right
And I don't mind
Just give me time, baby, give me time

[Verse 2]
Her stinging eyes, and her sixteen-hour drive, and our shared, transparent rope
And our icy dive through hope I'll memorize, and I'll cut into my mind
I can't believe it can be so
I won't believe that my girl froze

[Bridge]
Well, my girl knows I'm coiled tight and green inside
Just give me time, baby, give me time

[Verse 3]
And that weight you hold, it's getting light
And, love, I know you'll raise it easily up high
Just give it time, just give it time

[Outro]
Oh baby, just give it time
