A pop punk meets prog anthem about wanting a long painful season to come to an end.


This Winter's been a long year full of slate and empty skies
The days all bleed into each other and bleed my joy until it's dry
I wait for You
I could believe the frost forever and let my inner fire die
Or shake my fist into the heavens. Bravado strong as rotten ice
I wait for You

I wait for Spring
To wake and breathe new life into what Winter's cold has claimed
I wait for Spring

In every ray of light a promise though bitter tears may spend the night
That there has never been a Winter allowed to stay beyond its time
I wait for You

Must I always carry on this way
'til the tension one day breaks
Is this the best I've been told to make
Embracing things I have grown to hate
Is this forever or a day
Dead or asleep?
