Don't You Know

Summertime is here but I long for winter
Red wine glistening
And the fire soldiers on
Water's marching down the chimney once again
Rusty tracks and a misty teacup
Standing over by the corner
On the window sill
And the wind outside with a grin says to me

Hey, don't you know
People gonna tell you what they think you need to know
Hey, well don't you know
People gonna tell you what they think you need to know

Winter's here and I love the rain
As it hits the tin roof next to my bedroom
Once again
With the sound of a halo symphony, earth bound
And I feel like it should be like this
Everyday
Or at least just for a while
Until the sun comes knocking on my door saying

Hey, don't you know
People gonna tell you what they think you need to know
Hey, well don't you know
People gonna tell you what they think you need to know

So you call me a friend
Then stay to the very end
Yeah if you'd rather just pretend
Then the wind will blow you away
Away from me

So, so here's my shoes
Try and make them fit if it works for you
Say, say try the easy way
But these puddles are too deep for you
For you...
