about

Written by Owen Ashworth

lyrics

On the train to your hometown

at stranger’s side on Christmas Eve
Dozing in the window seat

your laundry in your lap

Your brother’s pick-up truck is in the lot
engine running

Steady snow the dog’s asleep

your mom complains about the tree
Cousins come at dinnertime

with babies & partners

You’ll talk about your job or talk about
your apartment


On the bed where you first slept

with your husband at seventeen

Read your yearbooks back to front

with TV on & your skirt off

& counted all of your teachers who were
younger than you now
