Can we last through the winter,
the water's starting to freeze.
The only one who remembers,
taking the wrong step falling in front of me.

This body's already aging,
these nights are already long,
and if I last through the winter
I swear to you now, I won't call.

Congratulations, go home now.

Will we last through the winter,
will we make it to see.
I never wanted a partner,
and I never loved you,
now you are free to leave.
This heart is already frozen,
I can't remember the fall,
and if I last through the winter,
I swear to you now, I won't call.
Congratulations, go home now.

It's too late, it's too late, they won't let go.
Follow five footsteps through that open door.

It must be buried under the heart
that makes this pace consistent.
You'll find it torn, that gate's been opened
I've been wondering, if you've been real with us.

It's too late

It's too late, it's too late, they won't let go.
Follow five footsteps through that open door.

It's that start stop and go
you've been dying for(2x).

    General CommentI'm starting to think that Anthony might know alot about Roman mythology, and that it might be what he believes in. Juturna (the cd name) is actually the Roman goddess of water, wells, and springs. This song, and some others on the cd mention water. Janus (Juturna's husband according to mythology) is the god of gates, doors, doorways, beginnings, and endings. Note again, that in this song, gates and doors are mentioned. He is also a god of the threshold between the old year and the new, and the year begins with January (which is named after him, and which is also a winter month.) The song talks about winter alot.

    I think that their might be a correlation between the song and Roman mythology. Just a guess.

    General CommentAlrighty guys. This song is pretty simple.

    ‘Boy’ (Anthony Green) and ‘Girl’ are friends. ‘Boy’ develops feelings for ‘Girl’. There is always some sort of feeling between them. Girl likes a different ‘Guy’ now, ‘Boy’ (Anthony) confesses his love to her. She doesn’t bite. She goes with this new ‘Guy’.

    Proof -
    Can we last through the winter? - (Symbolism of coldness, all things die in winter, including their friendship. Anthony is questioning whether or not it will last etc)
    ... Taking the wrong step, falling in front of me (the girl took the wrong step, and chose another guy, and feel for him, right in front of Anthony)
    This body is already aging; these nights are already long (meaning he is tired of waiting for her to be his)
    If I last through the winter, I swear to you now I wont call, Congratulations, go home now. (Pretty self explanatory, if he can last the winter without her then he never wants to see her again, and the ‘congratulations’ is basically reflecting the moment when she tells him that she’s with this other guy, he wants nothing more to do with her, thus asking her to leave)
    ... I never wanted a partner, I never loved you, now you are free to leave.. (Basically he is denying ever having those feelings for her, trying to hurt her like she hurt him)
    This heart is already frozen, I can’t remember the fall, and if I last through the winter I swear to you now I wont call (basically, he is already trying to give up, he cant remember the fall, meaning like the beginning, because it comes before winter, but also hints at when he initially fell for her)
    .. It must be buried under the heart, that makes this pace consistent (basically, he is saying, she must have some feelings for me in there somewhere, that is why our friendship and closeness has remained so tight and consistent)
    You’ll find it torn, that gate's been opened. and I’ve been wondering if you've been real with us. (She will find her heart torn, the opportunity has been presented to her, and if she doesn’t take him, he will wonder if their friendship was real at all)
    It’s too late. It’s that start stop and go, you've been dying for. (Essentially, its the wondering and the flirting that she craves, the ‘chase’)

    General Commenti definitely think its

    "this heart is already frozen, i cant remember to thaw."

    -to thaw means to melt.

    i think that means his heart is "frozen" in a sense that he does not want to love and its gone bad after what has happened, and he doesn't want to let anyone in to let his heart go back to the way it was... or "thaw"

    i also think drmmrgrl mad some interesting points about this, i dont know how you came up with that stuff. . . but i really would like to think that anthony is human and is just talking about human relationships and shit that has happened to him.
    i just dont see how he could make all those really small connections.

    amazing song.

    General CommentThere is some greater correlation between Juturna and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind... I'm going to watch this movie and study the lyrics...

    I'll be back...

    General CommentI think he's talking about the season "Fall." His heart is already frozen, so he can't remember Autumn.

    General Commentwhen he says "i never loved you" and all the other mean things, do you think he's bitter like she broke his heart type of thing or do you think he really never liked her and she's acting like he does. or did what i wrote completely not make sense? haha
