"Winter Marches On" as written by and Simon/rhodes Lebon....
(Oooh, ohhh, Mmmm)
The trade's on.
She drains emotion -
To drink from,
The breast of fortune
Dreams have frozen,
Crystal in the morning
Birthtime rose,
A thorn for coronation.
All arise from your rest
We'll find enough there to feed you.
Soon you'll belong to the blessed
Spare us your lives while we need you.
Loud, is the music, the crowd is ringing
Out, of my head as the winter marches on...
Loud is the music the sky is bringing
Out of my head as the winter marches on...
Loud, is the music, the crowd is bringing
Out, of my head as the winter marches on...
Loud is the music the sky is ringing
Out of my head as the winter marches on...
And on...
Winter marches on...

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song. I take it this song is about the winter dragging on with the promise of all that spring brings.

    General CommentWow. Only 1 lonely comment on this song. That surprises me. This was always been one of my favorite songs. I think Canada's comment is over 2 years old. Maybe 2 years from now someone will read mine. I have no idea what the writer was originally referring to when he wrote it, but to me the song brings up emotions in me about death, the end of love, and new beginnings. Obvious and simple perhaps, but don't all the great ones evoke simplicity?

    i don't have an exact thought on this song regarding it's meaning but well, it's so beautiful. Notorious is just a great record.

    Song MeaningMaybe something to do with Yasmin Le Bon's miscarriage, which happened around the same time?

    Sad but very beautiful song.

    General CommentThis is the first of a trilogy about loss. Do You Believe In Shame was about grieving, Ordinary World about moving on. Winter Marches on is, in my opinion, about the realisation that you someone you love is going to die. The title refers to the inevitability of death, as winter is something that doesn't stop for anyone.
    As with most of Le Bon's lyrics, it's hard to dissect the words line by line, which is part of the beauty of this song. Combined with the haunting music, this is one of the most intimate DD-songs. As with most DD-ballads, it's a gem.
