Last Year Lyrics
January came and took my heart away
February felt the same
March, my hugs became hold ons
April, I huffed like porridge on the boil
Morning May, I'm downwind from your shampoo
Ichi, ni, san, go, roku, nana, hachi, kyuu, jyuu
June, I learned to count to ten in Japanese
Dry July, like wiping skin from my skull
Instead, I visited family
They told me I'm special
Hmm
Augustus came and stabilised me with my father's pain
Relieving drug, diazepam
Life floats away
October, I swam back for my birthday
Firework display in a cafeteria of my old school
Happier in my cold, black sleep in my cold, deep bed
December, you sang at my funeral

If it's depths to your rivers, I've picked one for you
Oh, greedy with Ss but equalled by Is
If it's stones for your pockets, I've collected a few
To hold you down
To hold you down

Mississippi, come back to me
Oh, Mississippi, your cold, black sleep
Oh, Mississippi
Oh, oh, oh

Mississippi, come back to me
Come, Mississippi from your cold black sleep
Oh, Mississippi
Hmm
Hmm
