Autumn’s cool breeze is over, girl
The leaves have danced their last
Memories of you drip out the edges
Of swollen eyes tied to our past
This chapter will never be read aloud
I doubt that others will ever know
We’d moved beyond the simple surface
You were so close to touching my soul

We never made it to being a couple
But we were quickly more than friends
The infatuation of those October skies
Looks quite different now in Winter’s lens
Those scribbles of yours.. once poetry
Love songs that ran along Fall’s breeze
I thought you were melting into my blues
Then I saw another you sought to please

You giggled and you sighed
Looked at him with wanton eyes
And the snow dropped from the skies
Until it covered all your alibis 

True love is not a captor’s contest
Intimacy to one heart, never a crowd
Those sweet nothings I wanted for me
You voiced to many.. yes you wowed
I saw you whisper to one a love song
Then to others..  just a friendly kiss
You teased them all with your sexy lines
Love had me blind how could i miss...

You giggled and you sighed
Looked at him with wanton eyes
And the snow dropped from the skies
Until it covered all your alibis 
Winter covered your alibis 

Winter covered your alibis 
Winter covered your alibis 

~Lyric Man

Note: I wanted to write a deep song about true love and how incredible it is.. and as such, it’s devastating when you think you have love and all you have is a memory (and a painful one at that). True love is intimacy to one person. Love can cool faster than coming Winter when you learn your singleness of heart and mind have not been reciprocated!

A tinge of sadness and beautiful lyrics.Love can soothe the pain but it can cut like a knife when its a one sided love...Am deeply moved.

Winter covered alibis, nice concept Dave, well chosen words, great execution, could hear the melody in my mind...that's a good sign!! Betrayal is the worst, seems like more and more people are experiencing it these days, where's the loyal love?

When its one sided you surely feel the winters chill, well written lyric Dave. Tom.

There certainly is a chill in the air, while reading these words. The cold wind of winter hurts less, than this feeling you share here. When you feel so close to someone, and they don't feel the same way. It is painful indeed. Especially if they are not being true to who they are. Your thoughts touch me deeply. ~ Brandy
