The sun is skinny
in February
and the clouds are growing close
the blue plows
trace the streets at sundown
bracing for the snow

I confide
in your stillness
and your sweet sunrise
So pretty so polite
don’t you lie to me
Don’t you lie

Shops are full
in February
of roses and balloons
Saturn with his rings to spare
proposes to the moon

It’s hard to listen
In February
The wind is so darn loud
By the time the sun goes down
you’re tired of the sound

You’ve been wronged
Make it right,
don’t you lie to me,
don’t you lie.
