LyricsEdit

Through the shifting colors in the sky
I heard the wild geese call
And the light was bright and clear and cold
Over eastern Montreal
And although I know
You're only toying with me now
And although you hold
Your affection for me like a bone on a string
I love you, I love you because
You gave me sausage and cheese when I was hungry

You hold your closed hand out to me
And you told me to guess what you had inside
And I had a thousand guesses and some of them were good
But I knew for sure that I was losing my mind
When the scent came rising
Through the spaces between your fingers
When the scent called to me
And I knew we'd last at least 'til the end of December
And I love you, I love you because
You gave me sausage and cheese when I was hungry
