I wanted to end the album with a song that I had written right about the time the original members of the band were going seperate ways. Since this song featured our first violin player, Jimmy, I recruited Tyson Leonard who played with a later version of the band , to do the violin. I also got Mike "Doc" Lorenzo, our original bass player to come in and record the bass part. The lyrics are about being in a place where you meet someone special but the timing is just not right.


Winter's Cold
by John Beccia

Her dress was black, the moon was white
My thoughts were shades of grey
I followed her into the night and searched for what to say

Her touch was warm, the night was cold
And I was caught between
And somehow I could not let go, so lost in where I'd been

CHORUS - Losing love can leave you empty
Winter's cold creeps in
The trees are bare, but seasons change
And love will bloom again

We reached a spot to sit and talk
Beneath a naked tree
The shadows of the branches reached for something we can't see

We talked of time, we talked of place
So many other things
How life is such a mystery, and who knows what it brings


If you've loved, you know the way
That love can make you feel
And everyone's had scars before that only time can heal

Our past loves surface now and then
Beneath the heart's locked door
She took my hand as silence fell, since words could say no more
