The Alice Band – January's Child lyrics

On the coldest night of the year
I start to rethink hell
Cos all you hear is a cruel wind blowin'
Fire engine bells

See this family had no heat
So they built a bonfire in their living-room
They thought they could keep it a secret
But those flames caught on
And soon the whole building went up
And I saw one fireman turn to another and say
"It's quite a blaze we've got here
Everyone's, warm for now"

And the fire's burning the east side
And the west is hunkering down
And I'm in search of comfort
And he is a loser
Working in mid-town

Oh, it's negative something degrees
Oh, and I think the whole world may freeze
It's been this low for a while
January's Child

It's the coldest night of the year
And I've decided hell
Is on 29th Street, yeah
Well the car's jammed down 10th Avenue
Cos the girls'll go on sale
Just to get inside
Hey Annie, you wanna ride?

Well they say anything is possible
For a twenty or a ten
If your car has heat
Hell is 29th Street

And these few degrees are lonely
And they cling to me for life
Holding on to a dead man's blanket
A lost dog's fur
And a hooker's exposed thighs

Oh, it hasn't been sunny for weeks
Oh, the tears freeze on my cheeks
It's been this low for a while
January's Child

Well he finds me on his steps outside
And I'm half frozen in ice
So he digs me up
He drags me in
And he cuts like a surgeon through my skin
Into warm blood
Lay's me down and gives me love
When I tell him I wanna die
That january boy laughs and says
"Ok snow queen, here's a match why don't you try?"

Oh, it's negative something degrees
Oh, and I think the whole world may freeze
It's been this low for a while
January's Child

Oh, It'll be alright in a while
Says January's Child
It's gonna it's gonna be alright
It's gonna it's gonna be alright
Alright, alright in a while
Says January's Child
