Be careful what you wish for

Story Behind the Song

YOUNG COUPLE STRIKE OUT TO FIND A PLACE OF THEIR OWN, SETTLE DOWN ON A FARM. THOUGHT THEIR LOVE WOULD GET THEM THROUGH THE HARD TIMES BUT SOMEHOW LOVE WENT COLD.

Lyrics

WINTER'S SONG

WE STARTED OUT IN EARLY SPRING, HOPES WERE HIGH AND LOVE WOULD SEE US THROUGH, SETTLED ON A PIECE OF GROUND, FERTILE SOIL, MOUNTAIN VIEW.

MAYBE WE WERE JUST TOO YOUNG, I NEEDED SOMEPLACE THAT I COULD CALL MINE; I KNOW LIFE WAS HARD FOR YOU, I THOUGHT IF WE GOT THROUGH THE WINTER, WE'D BE FINE.

CHORUS: WINTER'S SONG IS EVERYWHERE, LISTEN AND YOU'LL HEAR IT IN THE TREES. WINTER DOESN'T TURN LOVE COLD, IT CAN HAPPEN EVEN IN A SUMMER BREEZE.

LONG BEFORE THE WINTER CAME, LONG BEFORE THE FIRST SNOW TOUCHED THE HILLS, I COULD FEEL A CHANGE IN YOU, THOUGH MY HEART WOULD NOT BELIEVE IT, NEVER WILL.

THE SUBTLE SIGNS WERE EVERYWHERE, I SHUT MY EYES, I CHOSE NOT TO SEE, LONG BEFORE THE LEAVES WOULD FALL, YOU SOMEHOW FELL OUT OF LOVE WITH ME.

REPEAT CHORUS:

YOU LEFT ME HERE IN AUTUMN, JUST BEFORE THE ASPEN TURNED TO GOLD, I DON'T MIND THE WINTER, BUT SOMEHOW THIS PLACE JUST SEEMS SO COLD.

THIS FARM WAS ALL I WANTED, NOW IT'S JUST A BUNCH OF WOOD AND STONE. YES IT WAS ALWAYS IN MY DREAMS, BUT IN MY DREAMS I WAS NOT ALONE.

REPEAT CHORUS:
