In Like a Lion (Always Winter)

It’s always nice to look out the window
And see those very first few flakes of snow
And later on we can go outside
And create the impression of an angel that just fell from the sky
When February rolls around I’ll roll my eyes
Turn a cold shoulder to these even colder skies
And by the fire my heart it heaves a sigh
For the green grass waiting on the other side

It’s always winter but never Christmas
It seems this curse just can’t be lifted
Yet in the midst of all this ice and snow
Our hearts stay warm cause they are filled with hope

It’d be so nice to look out the window
And see the leaves on the trees begin to show
The birds would congregate and sing
A song of birth a song of newer things

The wind would calm and the sun would shine
I’d go outside and I’d squint my eyes
But for now I will simply just withdraw
Sit here and wish for this world to thaw
It’s always winter but never Christmas
It seems this curse just can’t be lifted
Yet in the midst of all this ice and snow
Our hearts stay warm cause they are filled with hope

And everything it changed overnight
This dying world you brought it back to life
And deep inside I felt things
Shifting everything was melting
Away oh away
And you gave us the most beautiful of days

Cause when it’s always winter but never Christmas
Sometimes it feels like you’re not with us
But deep inside our hearts we know
That you are here and we will not lose hope

This is a song by Relient K

I love it!!!!

The first time I heard it, It helped me understand why CS Lewis decided to make Narnia “always winter & never Christmas” The world we live is ok, nice at first, but after a while, it feels “off” Things are not perfect, we hope for more. Reminds me of the idea of the Kingdom of God being “already & not yet”

In addition to that, I love how the song reminds me of snow at winter. My roomie & I have already decided that this will be our theme song next winter when we live somewhere where it will snow.

    wow, I never really heard the lyrics to that song. I like it even more now, it definitely captures the idea of “waiting for spring.”I must say your lines are very nicely justified 😉

    pretty sweet words. I had to fix the wording later…major justification issues again! But I got it worked out.
