Susie Suh | Winter

I couldn't wait for the seasons to change from autumn to winter because I (have for so long) wanted to post the lyrics to this song by Susie Suh, which is from her new album, The Bakman Tapes.  The song is earthy magical--even grounding and whimsical--in mood.  But I couldn't find a live performance of this song on YouTube.  Otherwise, there may have been a video accompaniment to the lyrical content in this post.

Disclaimer: I've typed out the lyrics myself while listening to the song, so all lyrical errors are of my own doing.


Winter by Susie Suh 

Oh, winter
We are falling...
We are hiding...
We are hibernating.
In the depths of the wake
And the depths of the dark
In the depths of the wake
In the depths of our dreams
And so it seems that winter
Comforts me.

With the calm inside the eye of the storm
As we sit by the fire and watch the embers burn.
Ooh, can you feel the warmth inside our cave
As we drink our wine and forget about our days?

Winter on my knees...
Winter begging please...
Winter, I will say,
Snow again today?
So that we can hibernate.

Oh, winter
While the bears sleep...
And the owls hoot...
And the wolves cry.
And the dogs bark out
And the birds sing loud
I will say,
What a glorious day
For us to hideaway.

It’s the silence inside the colors of the room
As we sit by the fire and watch the embers burn.
Ooh, can you feel the peace inside our cave
As we drink our chamomile and reminisce about those days.

Winter on my...knees...
Winter begging please...
Winter I will say,
Snow again today?
So that we can hibernate.

Oh, winter comforts me.

Winter on my knees...
Winter, begging please...
Winter I will say,
Snow again today?
So that we can hibernate.
