about

Primarily about seasonal affective disorder. I had fun with the harmonies and the weird keyboard and guitar at the end.

lyrics

Somehow I always forget
When winter comes I know what's next
Somehow I always find myself lost
I just must remember that seasons will change

I can never escape from the beast
It will haunt me until the end
It doesn't matter how things are
I cannot run, I cannot hide

I don't want to fall but there's no way out
I'm trapped in a cloud of darkness and shame
Clarity fades and I'm left all alone
Helpless in a flood of half-truths and worse

I've tried for years and years and years
It's something I must accept as life
I know the tricks to try to stay away
But from time to time I let things slip

I can never escape from my mind
It will haunt me forever and ever
It does not matter where I am
It always looms over my head

You'd think by now I'd know what's to come
Still somehow I'm surprised each time
When nights get long and days grow cold
It's inevitable that I'll find myself down
