AN ODE TO LATE NIGHT WALKS PASSED A LATE NIGHT BAKERY

lyrics

Let the smell of bread guide you home
Oh let the smell of bread guide you home
When the night is long and cold,
And you're walking home alone
Oh let the smell of bread guide you home

The traffic light blinks yellow,
It's an empty feeling hello
And I'm the only one alive out here tonight

And I'm stumblin' with a tilt on,
I smashed a frozen pylon
And there's a silver-dollar moon shinin' in the sky

Let the smell of bread guide you home
Oh let the smell of bread guide you home
When the night is long and cold,
And you're walking home alone
Oh let the smell of bread guide you home

They say fortune favours the bold
But that won't fly in this cold
'Cause I've got a creakin' in my knees

I'm a voyageur cuttin' first tracks
The snow blurs lines like I blur facts
I wish that I had cross-country skis

Let the smell of bread guide you home
Oh let the smell of bread guide you home
When the night is long and cold,
And you're walking home alone
Oh let the smell of bread guide you home

etc.
