Henry Jamison The Jacket Lyrics

She wore a black jacket and the winter sun beat down

Or I guess it was early Spring and we were in a park in Chinatown

If I were jacket

Her chest and limbs all rapped around

I would soak up all that light into my lining

I leaned in to feel the warmth pouring off her skin

Yes i tried to breathe her essence like it was precious oxygen

And she took off her jacket the second we walked in

And I soaked up all the light from the fluorescence

What was I supposed to say to her?

In the grocery aisle in the air conditioning

What was I supposed to say to her?

I was coming up empty

Coming up

I was on my phone for half an hour and bleached in the white light glare

Sittin’ at the sports bar ’cause the game is playing there

And the hometown team was down by 10

But I really didn’t care

I just soaked up all the light from the flat screen

Oh where can my little darling be?

Most of the money i ever spent, I spent it in her company

Now I’m lookin’ for some earnestness and my mind won’t let me be

Until I soak up all that light into my lining

What was I supposed to say to her?

In the grocery aisle in the air conditioning

What was I supposed to say to her?

I was coming up empty

Coming up

All day I did not know if we’d break up or I’d propose

We walked out into the April glow

Come to me now oh muse tell me something I can’t confuse

Sing me something I’ll never lose in knowing

What was I supposed to say to her?

In the grocery aisle in the air conditioning

What was I supposed to say to her?

I was coming up empty

What was I supposed to say to her?

In the grocery aisle in the air conditioning

What was I supposed to say to her?

I was coming up empty

Coming up
