Winter Song 04:19
Cold days ahead Warm nights behind Now it’s just the waiting For Winter to unwind Summer came and went The sun it never shined Another year spent waiting For Winter to unwind The wind cut through your skin The snow it caught you blind Once more unprepared For Winter to unwind And so once again You swear that next year You’ll bathe in that old sunshine The first chill in the air On the heels of Fall While the leaves float down You wish you could recall Memories of Spring Eclipsed by regret That leaves without a sound So each year you forget And so once again You swear that next year You’ll bathe in the sun … shine And run about the fields And never let that warmth go away Or fade from your mind But Winter will unwind Denial turns to wrath Then dealing to despair Until you let it be You’ll spend forever there Cold days ahead Warm nights behind Now it’s just the waiting For Winter to unwind And for all the good it does To pray it will be kind ‘Twas Goddess cleared the way For Winter to unwind So shine And run about the fields And never let that moment stray Or fade from your mind Just shine And run about the fields And never let that warmth go away Or fade from your mind For Winter will unwind

about

"Summer came and went. The sun it never shined."
This is how I am processing 2020 - with a song. The thing about New Year's Eve in Vermont is that on one hand we get hopeful about a fresh new year to come. But we also know that January means we're looking down the barrel of four months (at least) of deep dark Winter. When the sun does come back, we swear we'll enjoy the fuck out of it.

I wrote “Winter Song” in late November/early December 2020. The bridge section (“Denial turns to wrath”) borrows a riff from the old Mailbox tune “Europa” from the Attempt No Landing album. Since every single deserves a b-side, I reimagined it in the style of the a-side for “Second Winter Song.”
