Hazy Shade of Winter

ŠPaul Simon, released on Bookends (Simon and Garfunkel) 1968

.

Time, time, time, see what's become of me

While I looked around

For my possibilities

I was so hard to please

But look around, leaves are brown

And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

.

Hear the salvation army band

Down by the riverside, it's bound to be a better ride

Than what you've got planned

Carry your cup in your hand

And look around, leaves are brown now

And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

.

Hang on to your hopes, my friend

That's an easy thing to say, but if your hope should pass away

Just simply pretend

That you can build them again

Look around, the grass is high

The fields are ripe, it's the springtime of my life

.

Ahhh, seasons change with the scenery

Weaving time in a tapestry

Won't you stop and remember me

At any convenient time

Funny how my memory slips while looking over manuscripts

Of unpublished rhyme

Drinking my vodka and lime

.

I look around, leaves are brown now

And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

.

Look around, leaves are brown

There's a patch of snow on the ground...

.

Look around, leaves are brown

There's a patch of snow on the ground...

.

Look around, leaves are brown

There's a patch of snow on the ground...
