Sometimes in Winter


I've always loved the unusual music and lyrics of Blood, Sweat and Tears since they first charmed my eardrums in my early twenties (Note to self: NO, seriously, that long ago?) and this is one my favourites of theirs. I've never found it sad, as one might expect, but quite uplifting.


BLOOD, SWEAT & TEARS
"Sometimes In Winter"
(Steve Katz)

Sometimes in Winter
I gaze into the streets
And walk through snow and city sleet
Behind your room


Sometimes in Winter
Forgotten memories
Remember you behind the trees
With leaves that cried


By the window once I waited for you
Laughing slightly you would run
Trees alone would shield us in the meadow
Makin' love in the evening sun


Now you're gone girl
And the lamp posts call your name
I can hear, them
In the spring of frozen rain
Now you're gone girl
And the time's slowed down till dawn
It's a cold room and the walls ask
Where you've gone


Sometimes In Winter
I love you when the good times
Seem like mem'ries int he spring
That never came


Sometimes In Winter
I wish the empty streets
Would fill with laughter from the tears
That ease my pain

  1. Oops, have I missed them?

    Popsong lyrics never strike me as very meaningful.

    I agree with most of what you say but Grandgirl has played me some incredible modern stuff.

  5. My teenage nephew introduced me to BSAT years ago and I've enjoyed them since. Initially, the group's name had me thinking I would like them, but then I heard their music -- most enjoyable since I've long liked jazz.

  6. I have always loved that song. thanks for printing out all the lyrics, poetic and haunting. BSAT was (is) one of my all time favorite groups. I am inspired to get out that old album and listen again. Thanks

    Yes, I never tire of them (40 years+now) and more often than not an old memory will resurface of original listening times.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
