lyrics

Lay thy hands upon me
and push me down the road
I'll pop the clutch, and say as much
as I intend to know
and the ice is breaking up
down in the river valley
all the spring ponies wake up stranded in the snow

Three times have I seen through glass
waiting for the chill to pass
the second and first, I came to curse
the third time I came I came to laugh

So I won't bear false witness to the things that I have seen
Death he rides a motorbike, but so does the coming spring
I won't be the one to speak of things I do not know
when I say all the spring ponies wake up stranded in the snow

March was brown and beaten down
and does no justice to this town
the loudest pipes might save my life or they might lay me down
either way, out county way I hear them coming round

and three times have I seen through glass
waiting for the chill to pass
the second and first time I came to curse
the third time I cam, I came to laugh

So lay thy hands upon me, and push me down the road
I'll pop the clutch and say as much
as I intend to know
and the ice is breaking up down in the winter valley
all the spring ponies take off as fast as they can go
