SONG OF THE MONTH/FEBRUARY 2016

January 23, 2016

Winter is more than a season in this country, it is a condition of the soul.  

 

I have a hole in my life I’m afraid to show you.

I have a need so great, cannot wait to hold you,

closer, closer, until this winter’s done.

Touch me, touch me, cries the February sun.

 

I swear I’ll love you when the winter comes again.

I swear I’ll need you when conditions aren’t the same.

I have a hole in my life I’m afraid to show you.

I have a need so great, please just let me hold you,

closer, closer, until this winter’s done.

Touch me, touch me, cries the February sun.

 

Daughter of the spring wind melt the snow in the trees.

Turn the snowplow thunder into swords of summer lightning.

I swear I’ll love you when the winter comes again.

I swear I’ll need you when conditions aren’t the same.

 

February sun.

I’ll build a stronghold in my solitary bed.

February sun.

I’ll have to dream instead.

 

I have a hole in my life I’m afraid to show you.

I have a need so great, cannot wait to hold you.

 

Amo/Fathers 2016
