about

A track I wrote specifically as a song (others on the album only became songs accidentally). I was going for synthpop even though I don't particularly think I have any affinity with the genre any more. The initial results were shot down before I had even attempted to sing the original lyrics. After giving them to my partner Lou for her critical analysis, she told me in no uncertain terms that the theme was not only depressing, but virtually suicidal.

A quick shuffle, and a long rewrite later, and it almost sounds like a love song. A love song that required more passion than my limited voice could muster though, so the wonderful Craig Manga brought his Beefheartian baritone along and did the honours.

lyrics

Feel the heat
it leaves my heart
See the light
it’s fading
I long for days
that never start
Just endless night
endless waiting

In the winter night
as the frost descends
Now the year is over
Will this darkness ever end?
In the winter night
as the frost descends
Now the year is over
Will this darkness ever end?

See the sun
a Nordic bloom
It bares no heat
No life force
but breath still waits
within the soil
and bides it’s time
in shadow

In the winter night
as the snow descends
Another year is over
and the darkness never ends
In the winter night
as the snow descends
Another year is over
and the darkness never ends

I look at you
and feel your glow
just come to me
my wildfire
You give me light
when shade prevails
I need you here
forever

In the winter night
when the frost descends
You provide the answer
Will this darkness ever end?
In the winter night
when the frost descends
You provide the answer
Will this darkness ever end?

In the moonlight night
as the stars ascend
You can bring the sunshine
and lead darkness to an end
In the moonlight night
as the stars ascend
You can bring the sunshine
and lead darkness to an end

In the winter night
as the snow descends
Life is all around us
and the spirit never ends
In the winter night
as the snow descends
Life is all around us
and the spirit never ends

In the winter night
as the moon descends
Life is all around us
and the spirit never ends
In the winter night
as the moon descends
Love is all around us
and the spirit never ends
