Winter Long

I doubt you ever heard my voice
amid the chorus of hatred and disgust
but I desire to bring hope to bear
upon the fire of your deep despair

to you I'm just a shadowy silhouette
just a cat in a hat
with a lit cigarette
singing a song as I'm walking along
in a very very down town

but I need to talk to you
before you make up your mind
before you carry it through
no, I don't think it's a good idea
to give in to anger, sadness, fear

just give me a chance
to convince you of
all the reasons to live
all the reasons to love

no I won't leave you alone
until the spring
I'll be around
all winter long

[ black cat to anybody, do you read me? anyone? is no one left? (scream)]

a pine in the snow is proof enough
holding it's own against a
tide of snow on nights of 10 below
needles ever green because they're

extraordinarily tough
they know that life is rough
it's prone to sadness and uncertainty
never very just
but you must

keep loving baby
oh it's the only way we
can ever show that our souls
are worth a damn

take it from the sole survivor
im a symbol undecipherable
to contemporary minds
walking along this path less taken
to the rhythm and the beat
that my bloody pump's makin'

these days I'm a figure lost in the fog
just a freaky fright
just a scurvy dog
singing a song as I'm walking along
in a very very down town

but I need to talk to you
before you make up your mind
before you carry it through
no, I don't think it's a good idea
to give in to anger, sadness, fear

just give me a chance
to convince you of
all the reasons to live
all the reasons to love

no I won't leave you alone
until the spring
I'll be around
all winter long
