The Juniper

Song Description

Winter's sorrows cast such long shadows, the weariness of a grief that you cannot find your way out of. And yet, within the darkness of the howling night there is a point where you lie exhausted within the depth of your sadness and finally lay the seeds of love lost down within the snow to find their way back to spring.

When the west winds blow
You know, you just know
That winters a`coming
And with it snow

Oh the Juniper she stands alone
Through Decembers howling moans
So lay your sorrows down to seed
And grieve, just breathe

When the trees are bare
And the heart it despairs
As winter, it`s here now
And you're not prepared

Oh the Juniper she bears the thorn
Gentle `gainst the coming storm
She stands amidst the raging sky
So sigh, just cry

When the darkness comes
You want to succumb
As winters` unending
Sun can't be found

When the storm is through
What`s left to rue
As winters` releasing
Time to renew

Oh the Juniper she stands so fair
Needled crown within her hair
So, lay your seed, release your pain
Spring comes again
