I'm heading into Winter, and each progressing day sets us apart I'm trying to put some miles between us, but I end up right back at the start I'm having trouble letting go, although most days I'll swear I'm doing fine And in some dark corner of myself, I want to hear you say you still are mine And I'll be praying to your God your words are true I'll be praying to a God I never knew Yeah well we all have our choices; I know you by the road you choose to walk And from your lips forgiveness is just another word, just useless talk I'm stronger now I've given up, I'm angry but at least now I can feel Determination pulled me through, I'm better off alone and that's what's real So I will march into the battle of the new And I'll be praying that your God, He loves me too Yeah I'll pick myself back up, it's what I do And I will march because I've nothing left to lose Never again, now I know I have worth Roll on the winter and freeze up the earth Never again, I deserve more than this Love comes in seasons, It is what it is It is what it is, and you are what you are Oh it is what it is

Little Boy Blue, Little Boy Blue, If I'd seen the sights you've seen, I would sleep too Here in the corn, away from the call of the farmer's wife If I had your past, I would sleep rough Questions come easy, but they're not enough To say all the words unspoken; To find what is lost, to heal what has been broken Little Boy Blue, don't venture there The city will swallow you up in its air And misery's touch will leave you with nothing, Just lifeless eyes And there will be nothing left here All I'll have is your song lingering in my ear! Little Boy Blue, Little Boy Blue! I don't want it to be this way I have given you everything I'll still hold on to each word that you say 'till the horn of the ship sounds and takes you away With promises you made to me now I am left stranded here with your song in my ears Little Boy Blue, Little Boy Blue! I don't want it to be this way I have given you everything Little Boy Blue, open your eyes I want one last look before you make me cry

Walking in the dappled light I saw what could have been dressed in red, with skin so pure I thought she was a dream I could smell her sweet sharp scent from just beyond the trees Watched her breath curl in the morning mid october freeze Golden hair, eyes so blue, she stole my heart when she said: "Love me; Love me if you dare!" From then on I dreamed of how we'd live, and how we'd die I would fill her life with love and never let her cry She would banish all my fears, my woes, and I'd know joy I gave all the heart and soon became her favourite toy, a toy but no more Golden hair, eyes so blue, she stole my heart when she said: "Love me; Love me if you dare!" Just love me; don't lie to me Just promise that you'll love me Just promise that you'll Love me
