Wintertime

Written By: John Lion

Wintertime

V1A
The snow was falling
In a blanket
On the woods behind my house
It snowed all day

V1B
I went walking
The sky was clear
I left footprints in the snow
The air was cold
It felt good inside my lungs

PC1
It’s your holiday.

C1
Meet your lover’s eyes
And greet the son
Of Mary

Once your lover leaves your side
You’re left with January.
It’s not your time to speak.
It’s wintertime.

V2A
The evergreens
And avalanches, I saw starlight through its branches
In the night

V2B
You stand tall to meet it
Snow covered meadows
Winter winds and winter shadows
Call me! Call on me!

PC2
This is a different kind of holiday.

B: Half Time

C2
Meet your lover’s eyes
And greet the son
Of Mary

Once your lover leaves your side
You’re left with January.
It’s time to let it speak.
It’s wintertime.

The Distance Rhapsody

Written By: John Lion

The Distance Rhapsody

Intro
I’m going to leave my house and go far away
But you’ll be with me darlin’, every single day
You’re going to leave your house and, go far away
But I’ll be with you darlin’, I am here to stay

V1
You can cross an ocean honey, you can cross all seven
Atlantic, pacific, Adriatic – geography is your favorite subject
My love is stronger, stronger darling than a B-52
It’ll take more than an ocean honey, to keep me from lovin you
My love is swifter, swifter honey than an SR-71
If you’re lonely, just give me one minute and I’ll be
Surrounding you with my love.

B1A
But Eileen, I guess it’s time to grow up now
I guess my love can’t fly after all
We broke up the Saturday after I left home
Maybe I’ll see you a couple of years down the road…

B1B
Enter Phantom

V2
I know you might meet another man, whose kinder and stronger, a better man than I am
He might be perfect right down to the letter,
But would he break the copyright of Andrew Lloyd Weber?
Just to put your favorite song in a song written for you
Do you remember that night when we watched Phantom in the classroom?
We told ourselves that we were studying for finals, but we were really just falling in love.

V3
But now it’s clear as day, you’re going really motherfucking far away
And you had your heart broken
By your fat, Italian, hairy, but ironically balding, ex-boyfriend
And do you remember that time I got drunk
And reminded you of fires in the living room?
The sting of the smoke and the stale scent of gin
Eileen, you said you could never look at me the same way again.

OA
So if it’s the end, let this be my goodbye
And I hope you learned from me as much as I learned from you
And I know I said I’d do my best to try and forget you.

OB
But I look back on our memories and
Remember all of the good times we had
You tricked me to run down that mountain in the rain
I wonder if I really loved you.
