lyrics

AUGUST MAN
Cassie Josephine

I want to hold on to this
like a Nova Scotia summer.
They come and they go so quick.
Be my mid-august water--
all year long.

I’ve made my bed like the ice it is thick.
I’ve gotten used to the winter.
I’ve kicked the seas off of me in my dreams
and rolled out of bed like a lover--
undone.

It’s not a dream anymore
but I cannot handle the flood.
If you want to keep me warm,
be my mid-August man--
all year long.
