Thumb tacks spread out
 Across your hometown state
 Hollow tree at half mast
Wait until wintertime
 Leaves a paper trail a licorice plant that's overgrown 

Like a cabin in the woods on a minor 
Like a minor holiday

Wool rich red plaid wolf
 Irish whiskey glass 
Here comes my fine bright haired lass
Like a trash fire burning and burning it
My heart could never right the words never fail

 Tucked under your cap and for a moment 
There's a stillness before the room spins again
 Minor holiday, spin it again 
Ride it out so you can tell

 Wasted on the weekend  Making good time with my excuse  Where the plot lines are like dead ends
 Floating in her eyes at the bottom of a well
 Floating in her eyes ride it out for a spell 

 Minor holiday
 Transfer this weight  Minor holiday
 Transfer this weight  Going back and forth 
On a minor, minor holiday
