Everything Was Beautiful

Janis Ian

Did you hear the swallow?
He was calling out your name
He was saying that the winter's almost over

Fortune's on the wing
and now that spring is here
you will be leaving

Paint the sky in blue
and the colors that are you
softly fade away

It's a dim horizon
My eyes are getting old

I'll see you in the winter
when it's cold

The weather's always changing here
Without the seasons
life would be so bare

Did you hear the swallow
He was telling you
it's time to go

Everything was beautiful
Nothing hurt
It didn't even rain

They tell me people sometimes forget
what it's like to be alone
but i know that I'll remember
when you're gone
