Draw The Curtains

I skipped the part, when the local celebrities danced in the cold village hall
I skipped the night, when the firework smoke fell on the crowds in the school playing fields
I drew my breath, on the back of a postcard
But I skipped the morning, when the couples scraped ice off identikit cars by the road
And I’ll hook the chain on the door
Draw the curtains and silence the phone
Cancel the milk and the pay as you go
Just lift me out of this winter
