about

This is my sequel to 'Weather'. I wrote this upon hearing that Mia - the girl I wrote Weather for, named my band after, and who'd moved back to Germany - was returning to Australia. Ever since I conceived of the idea of the song, I had it in mind as my album finisher, and so it's the last song on the free version of the album. Musically it's probably the beat I'm most proud of as a producer, and I absolutely love the arrangement that I ended up with, especially the vocal harmonies. I didn't use harmonies anywhere near as much as I wanted to on With Love and I'm trying to make up for that now!

lyrics

Once upon a time
It was wintertime here
But the girl with golden hair
Brought the summer
And made the skies turn clear

We set the world alight
As we dreamed on the shore
But December wouldn't last
And those days were gone for evermore

'Cause the cold days returned with a vengeance
So I'll weather the tide as it turns
And the wind chill will sting
But I'll hope for the spring
And I'll never forget who we were
Until blue skies return

I remember standing still
As I yearned for the sun
But she left me staring at the lights
As they died out one by one

And slowly I convinced myself
That you had never come
'Cause if you were never here
Then the rain was never ever gone

But still the cold days returned with a vengeance
So I'll weather the tide as it turns
And the wind chill will sting
But I'll hope for the spring
And I'll never forget who we were
Until blue skies return

And I've been waiting so long
For the summer to return and stay
Oh, someday
Maybe then I'll see
If I loved you then I should have let you go
But just know

That when cold days return with a vengeance
And the frost of the wind starts to burn
Though the snow chill might sting
Just remember the spring
'Cause I'll never forget who we were
Until blue skies return
