lyrics

Slow down, February. You’ve got many seasons to change.
It’s much too early to be acting this way.
You’re warming up. You should be cooling down.
I need the cold. Bring it back around.
Slow down, February. You’ve got many seasons to change.

Slow down, gentle Lauren. You’ve got plenty of time to change.
It’s much too early to be acting this way.
You’re running off when you should be by my side.
Don’t make up excuses when you know they’re lies.
Slow down, gentle Lauren. You left me (with pain).

Please stop, Mister Postman, with all the bad news.
What did I ever do to you?
You’re always singing sins. You should just give in.
You’re always giving grief and I need relief.
Please stop, Mister Postman. We’ve got to get back to peace.

Calm down, naïve lovers, and let your love grow.
Inside all the old trees, they're dead, ya know?
You're always trying too hard. You should just try less.
‘Cause there is the chance that your worst is best.
Calm down, young lovers. Give time to your love.

Come back, gentle Lauren, there is no need to run
or disregard our building as done.
You're always changing sides every night,
switching arguments left and right.
So, come back, gentle Lauren. I will keep you safe and warm.
