It'll be dark at six
we'll all get sick
so turn the heat on
put some soup on
cause it'll be dark at six

the sun will set at five
we'll drag the plants inside
and hope they still grow
by the window
the sun will set at five

this happens every year
but I'm never quite prepared
for the first snow, falling thick and slow
before the trees are bare
and we'll hide out in our houses
till we get used the cold
and rum and coke and chimney smoke
make us bold

the streetlamps on at four
come in, but shut the door
and sip some cider
by the fire
the streetlamps on at four

"Though Grassmarket draws from traditional bluegrass and country, the trio cannot be slotted firmly into either's the songs' content that really gives this band its weight, shifting from intimate soul-scrapers to historical artifact with precision, conviction, and most importantly, heart. There's no one else in town making this music."
--Tara Thorne, The Coast, CBC Radio
