Winter rains
They be so ruthless and insane
Surfacing all my pains
Any attempts to shake them off, in vain

Oh winter rain!
Once again, uninvited and abundant you land
And some great reverence anโ€™ fame
Among my friends you’ve managed to gain

Oh winter rain!
Why so early this year have you came?
In my own fears you have me tamed
To bring out the worst in me is your aim

Oh winter rain!
Bitter cold, and ever the same
It’s like you’re calling my name
And taking me on a trip down memory lane

Oh winter rain!
Why are you playing this game?
In my bed all morning, I’ve lain
And dripping wet is my mane

Oh winter rain!
Falling relentlessly against my window pane
Inside my room you have me detained
Accompanying that bad feeling once again
