Lyrics

February

Written By: Aimee Bayles

February, missing the old and familiar
Singing the songs that remind me
Of the days gone by.

February, I never knew what you brought me
I never felt such a cold wind
Touch my face.

La da da da...

February, I lay awake under moonlight,
And I wonder to myself just how high
He could be.

February, kiss me and hug me when I'm blue
Tell me, cause I want to hear you,
Say it's all ok.

Will you take me through?
Will you hold on, too?
I just want this time
To change.
