Del Water Gap – Quilt of Steam Lyrics

Del Water Gap Quilt of Steam Lyrics

I didn’t know where I was until a month or so later
When I woke up, saw the quilt of steam rise off the radiator
Sweating through the layers
Stitched in my own hand
On and on for acres

All I ever wanted was for you to take a second
Drop it all to sit with me
Waiting in the car wondering if you would address it
Or just leave me hurting quietly

I needed a change, but I wasn’t brave enough
I needed a beer and a hug and a way out of the crater
I needed a change, so we wouldn’t fall out of love
I couldn’t admit I was crushed by the weight of being strangers

I carried on folding clothes alone as if it wasn’t treason
Acting strong, I just moved along as if it didn’t happen
Stoic like a captain, no compass in my hand
Just hold me till it passes

All I ever wanted was for you to take a second
Drop it all to sit with me
Waiting in the car wondering if you would address it
Or just leave me hurting quietly

I needed a change, but I wasn’t brave enough
I needed a beer and a hug and a way out of the crater
I needed a change, so we wouldn’t fall out of love
I couldn’t admit I was crushed by the weight of being strangers

I needed a change, but I wasn’t brave enough
I needed a beer and a hug and a way out of the crater
I needed a change, so we wouldn’t fall out of love
I couldn’t admit I was crushed by the weight of being strangers
