In The Winter

Janis Ian

* Also recorded by Dusty Springfield, and Barbi Benton

The days are okay
I watch the TV in the afternoons
If I get lonely,
the sound of other voices,
other rooms are near to me
I'm not afraid

The operator,
She tells the time,
It's good for a laugh
There's always radio,
and for a dime I can
talk to God - Dial-a-Prayer
Are you there?
Do you care?
Are you there?

And in the winter,
extra blankets for the cold
Fix the heater, getting old
I am wiser now, you know
and still as big a fool concerning you

I met your friend
She's very nice, what can I say?
It was an accident
I never dreamed we'd meet again this way
You're looking well
I'm not afraid

You have a lovely home
Just like a picture.
No, I live alone
I found it easier
You must remember how
I never liked the party life
Up all night
Lovely wife
You have a lovely wife

And in the winter
Extra blankets for the cold
Fix the heater, getting old
You are with her now, I know
I'll live alone forever
Not together now
