...For All The Seasons Of Your Mind

Sunflakes Fall, Snowrays Call

Janis Ian

It is the winter time of year
A time for all my troubled thought-dreams to come clear
And all the seasons I held dear
seem to have gone and left me 'lone,
with winter only here
Lonely, forever dreaming
My life is teeming with a yearning
I'd like to be learning

And it's summer out on the street
Sunflakes fall, snowrays call
Hey mama, it's me saying "Awwww..."
The policeman walks a most solitary beat

I feel at odds with the summertime
Ice is in my heart and winter's in my mind
I watch the snow upon my blinds
as people walk in shorts and sandals
everywhere outside
Lonely, forever hiding
Caught in the icy hide of winter
Outside it's warm and sunlight glimmers

And it's summer out on the street
Sunflakes fall, snowrays call
Hey mama, it's me saying "Awwww..."
The policeman walks a most solitary beat

Oh, when days are marked by winter's time
Spring and summer counts come racing to my mind
Within my heart the seasons never come inside
At times I hate and curse the world for making winter mine
Lonely, forever dreaming
My life is teemed with a yearning
I'd like to be learning

And it's summer out on the street
Sunflakes fall, the snowrays call
Hey mama, it's me saying "Awwww..."
The policeman walks a most solitary beat
