Frank Turner - Mittens lyrics


[Verse 1]
Wandering lonely through the snow streets of New York
I stumbled on a thrift store that sold postcards by the yard
I bought a mile and shipped them home so I could read
Ten thousand ten-word tragedies, the lives these strangers lead
To remind myself the things I need

[Chorus 1]
Cause I once wrote you love songs
You never fell in love
We used to fit like mittens, but never like gloves

[Post-Chorus 1]
You left me feeling like
We'd never really been in love

[Verse 2]
Huddled home up in my place, in Holloway
I wondered if you ever heard those songs I used to play
I wrote the [?] gift for you and in return
You gave a pair of hand knit mittens to keep my fingers warm
So I could play more ignored love songs

[Chorus 2]
I once wrote you love songs
You never fell in love
We used to fit like mittens, but never like gloves
And I once wrote you postcards
You never wrote back
Promised me you would and I'm still waiting for them

[Post-Chorus 2]
You left me feeling like
We'd never really been in love
Don't wanna fit like mittens
I wanna fit like gloves
Wanna fit like gloves

[Outro]
I once wrote you love songs
You never fell in love
We used to fit like mittens but never like gloves
Never like gloves
