lyrics

Hey there, winter.
Why do you play silently for me?
Would you bring your
sister out from hiding underneath?

Snowy banks and heavy lakes
are frozen to the core.
Sheets of ice and northern lights,
we've heard it all before.
But what comes next in hesitance,
is a melody so plain.
Please play for me, my songbird.

All those darkened mornings,
I would wait to hear your voice.
Don't you ever leave.

Hey there, springtime,
the warmer winds are a-blowin' from the south.
Life has taken
form in the shape of songs from your mouth.

Those healing notes have mended bones
and moved them back in line.
Your yellow dress shows in the nest
at the top of that wooden pine.
My only wish that can exist
is hoping you would stay.
Please play for me, my songbird.

All those darkened mornings,
I would wait to hear your voice.
Don't you ever leave.

Hey there, summer.
Your garden's overflowing with our strawberries.
You have left your
favorite branch and moved on to other trees.

The silent hum reminds me of
when you were only mine.
Headed west with no regrets,
I knew that it was time.
Count me blessed and nothing less.
All these years were kind.
Please play for me, my songbird.

All those darkened mornings,
I would wait to hear your voice.
Don't you ever leave.
