December marks the quiet ending/of apathy and ordinary things/ throwing disillusions to the dust/ as faded tears dried on your pillow slowly turn to rust/ and as you point your heart to January’s promise of the spring/ and you close your eyes and hope to God you don’t forget the things that kept you sane/ will you remain/ in January
The days grow longer and the sun fades gold/ I forget which feelings you bought and which you sold/ I want to speak but no words come to mind/ I hoped to give you credit but you never really tried/ and this time will not listen to your simple worded rhymes/ your sweet talk reputation has me fooled the final time/ when last, my heart will wander/ in January
The simple swell of two hearts beating perfectly in time
I’m wandering through promises that told me you were mine
Stuck to me your words still linger even though you’re gone/ in January
I know that often gentle hearts may fade/ the timing just came poorly ‘cause I’m stuck here in the rain/ where every bleak gray skyline looks the same/ I’m staring blankly at the ceiling feeling so unchanged/ and although your time is silver all my dreams were gold/ and I can’t negotiate the secrets that I told/ wrapped up in my honesty I found your feet were cold
in January/ Chorus
