lyrics

All of the leaves have fallen
Buried beneath the snow
They’d dig themselves all out but
There’s nowhere for them to go

The birds rest on the branches
Black knots in a string of grey
They sing a song of sadness
Then they’re on their way

Wintersad
Wintersad
I don’t think that I’ve ever had the blues this bad

Wintersad
Wintersad
God has sent the cold to test me

All of my life I’ve waited
For someone to impress me
My spirit elevated by
A kind woman who’ll undress me

Some girls co-operated
’Til they danced on to others
Their hearts are dead and empty
How can they stand as lovers?

Wintersad
Wintersad
I don’t think that I’ve ever had the blues this bad

Wintersad
Wintersad
There is no one left to love me

All of your decorations
Boxed up beneath the stair
Some bright and some are broken
They will stay waiting there

A string of lights above me
Beneath me just a chair
I pray to god to guide me
Release me into the air

Wintersad
Wintersad
Won’t somebody try to stop me

Wintersad
Wintersad
Even god reneges on taking me to his hand
