With a shiver in my bones Just thinking about the weather A quiver in my lips as if I might cry Well, by the force of will My lungs are filled and so I breathe Lately, it seems this big bed Is where I never leave Shiver in my bones Just thinking about the weather Quiver in my voice as I cry What a cold and rainy day Where on earth is the sun hid away I hear the sound Of a noon bell chime Now I'm far behind You've put in 'bout half a day While here I lie With a shiver in my bones Just thinking about the weather A quiver in my lip as if I might cry What a cold and rainy day Where on earth is the sun hid away Do I need someone here to scold me Or do I need someone Who'll grab and pull me Out of this four poster Dull torpor pulling downward For it is such a long time Since my better days I say my prayers nightly This will pass away The color of the sky as far As I can see is coal grey Lift my head from the pillow And then fall again With a shiver in my bones Just thinking about the weather A quiver in my lips as if I might cry What a cold and rainy day Where on earth is the sun hid away I shiver, quiver, and try to wake
