about

This song is about how many altruists feel what might happen without self-sacrifice being practiced as a virtue, as most are taught today. At the end of the day though, it is a simple song of one person's selfless act to save another and the unabashed joy it brought him.

lyrics

Chilling wind, choking cold, choking hold on him
Parka closed, buttoned up holding onto little heat
Little heat he needs
Shivering, freezing feet, fainted far from him
As she clings to the street she is faced with all she needs
His own willingness to freeze

If we could hold off forever
Then we would spend all our time
Guessing what happened to the...
Good nature of all our kind
If we could hold off forever
Then we would spend all our time
Guessing what happened to the...
Good nature of all our kind

Chilling wind, choking cold, choking hold on her
Little shirt, shallow lungs, she can only barely breathe
Little breath she needs
Shivering, freezing feet, fainted far from him
Hangs a coat on her frame, shivering, he happily
Makes his way to his own street

If we could hold off forever
Then we would spend all our time
Guessing what happened to the...
Good nature of all our kind
If we could hold off forever
Then we would spend all our time
Guessing what happened to the...
Good nature of all our kind
So I guess I'll start by making more of this life

Could hold off
Hold off forever
Could hold off
Hold off forever
Could hold off
Hold off forever
Could hold off
Hold off forever

If we could hold off forever
Then we would spend all our time
Guessing what happened to the...
Good nature of all our kind
If we could hold off forever
Then we would spend all our time
Guessing what happened to the...
Good nature of all our kind
So I guess I'll start by making more of this life
