The day begins just like any other
I wake up in the comfort of all this bedroom clutter
I look outside, another grey sky
Looks like winter is coming early this year

And I know it's gonna be a real cold one this time
A real break down, take down, cold one this time
Yeah...

My old highschool, just like the way I left it
With lots of bodies in it just waiting to get out
And me outside, looking in
Wondering, wishing that something would happen
The snow begins just like I remember
Looks like it's going to be another long, cold December

And I know it's gonna be a real cold one this time
A real break down, take down, cold one this time
And I know it's gonna be a real cold one this time
A mighty cold, gettin'-old-quick, make-you-sick one this time
Yeah...

The night blows in just like any other
So I crawl into my bed, get in underneath the covers
It's so cold in here,
I must have left the windows open
Outside it's still snowing,
Looks like winter is here...

And I know it's gonna be a real cold one this time
And I know it's gonna be a real cold one this time

And I know it's gonna be a real cold one this time
A real break down, take down, cold one this time
And I know it's gonna be a real cold one this time
A mighty cold, gettin'-old-quick, make-you-sick one this time
And I know it's gonna be a real cold one this time
A real break down, take down, cold one this time

And I know it's gonna be a real cold one this time...

    General CommentI'm only gonna say this once...Canadians and their songs about winter!

    No, but really. Once upon a time, winter made me sad. Then I found Said the Whale.
