I need it to be Spring.

Like you need it to be 5 o'clock 
or Friday
a mess to be cleaned up
the laundry put away
more money in the bank
more time more time more time.

I need it to be Spring.
I need to smell the earth at work
feel the tickle of a breeze
see some change, like green of leaves.

So let's hurry it up, I'm ready to start over
let's skim past 10 degrees, more snow
Been there, done that
moving on and now...

23 days the calendar right here says so.

Spring you hear that?
Come on, let's go.
