To Someone From A Warm Climate (Uiscefhuaraithe)

A joy hard-learned in winter was the warming of the bed
You'd shake for minutes there and move your legs
Wrap the blanket over you and keep your head within
Let your breath heat the air until you'd feel it getting thin

'Uiscefhuaraithe'
The feel of coldness only water brings
There are some things that no-one teaches you, love
That come natural as a dream you didn't know that you were in

And darling, all my dreaming
Is only put to shame
And darling, all my dreaming
Has only been given a name

But it came easy, darling
As natural as another leg around you in the bed frame
In summer's heat, I learned to dread the coming of the night
The awful things we do to make the head go quiet

You'd press your body to the concrete when you were small
The rains of winter seemed to never leave the walls
'Uiscefhuaraithe'
The feel of coolness only water brings

There are some things that no-one teaches you, love
That God in his awful wisdom just programs in
But darling, all my dreaming
Is only put to shame

And darling, all my dreaming
Has only been given a name
But it happened easy
Natural as another leg around you in the bed

And I wish I could say
That the river of my arms have found the ocean
And I wish I could say the cold lake water of my heart
Christ, it's boiling over

But it happened easy, darling
Natural as another leg around you in the bed frame
