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
