Written By: Music & Lyrics by Edie Wellman

I am layering again
Another cold September
Pierce my body with every kind of wind
Every kind of boy I meet
I get cold feet

Never cared about being warm
I just wanted to feel welcome
I got so tired of trying to bottle up the storm
I drink it down
And then I feel around

I feel like I’m walking on eggshells
For company I don’t keep
So take me back to shallow water
Before I get too deep
No more trains and planes and city lights for me

We made love more than I’m used to
I was a fool; I was afraid
We made love, but I didn’t want to
Didn’t know how fast I’d break

I feel like I’m walking on eggshells
For company I don’t keep
So take me back to shallow water
Before I get too deep
No more trains and planes and city lights for me

Tell me all your prophecies
Tell me I’m okay
Tell me all your prophecies
Tell me I should stay

Tell me all your prophecies
Tell me I’m okay
Tell me all your prophecies
Tell me I should stay

I should leave; I’m getting nowhere
I’m fighting with fire, fighting it all
Temperature’s down, no face I know around
Didn’t know how deep I could fall
We made love more than I’m used to
I was a fool; I was afraid
We made love, but I didn’t want to
Didn’t know how fast I’d break

And now I’m layering again
Now I’m layering again
I am layering and then…
