Winter Song

This song is by Harry Chapin and appears on the album Sniper and Other Love Songs (1972) and on the album The Gold Medal Collection (1988).

When the summer fled past my window
And autumn's chill was in the air
There was a special kind of lonesome
'Round that ending time of year.
When the leaves fell
And they drifted 'neath the trees that soon were bare
I felt that wind blow,
Ever colder,
And suddenly,
You were there.
We laughed and scuffled
While the snow fell
And the cold gave your cheecks a glow.
And in your arms come evening
A kind of peace I know.
Often I'd wake at midnight
Mid some icy winter storm,
And then I would find you
Beside me,
And you made the night seem so warm.
Now I go my way
And you go your way
Now that the winter's come and gone.
But somehow
With the springtime
Your golden warmth still lingers on.
