Winter Song Lyrics

Song: Winter Song

Artist: Sam Fender

Lyrics: Alan Hull

Composed: Bramwell Bronte

 

When winter's shadowy fingers

First pursue you down the street

And your boots no longer lie

About the cold around your feet

 

Do you spare a thought for summer

Whose passage is complete

Whose memories lie in ruins

And whose ruins lie in heat?

 

When winter comes howling in

 

When the wind is singing strangely

Blowing music through your head

And your rain-splattered windows

Make you decide to stay in bed

 

Do you spare a thought for the homeless tramp

Who wishes she was dead

Or pull up your bedclothes higher

Dream of summertime instead?

 

When winter comes howling in

 

The creeping cold has fingers

That caress without permission

And mystic crystal snowdrops

Only aggravate the condition

 

Do you spare one thought for the traveler

With no secure position

Who's turned and spurned by village and town

At the magistrate's decision?

 

When winter comes howling in

 

When the turkey is in the oven

And the Christmas presents are bought

And Santa's in his module

He's an American astronaut

 

Do you spare one thought for Jesus

Who had nothing but his thoughts

Who got busted just for talking

And befriending the wrong sorts?

 

When winter comes howling in

When winter

When winter comes

Comes howling in
