When you left, she was a wreck
Cause she said you left a mess
But you said that you'd be back home
Didn't want to see her all alone
And you bet she took your word
Cause she said you'll never learn
All the things that you put her through
Don't know why she's coming back to you

Oh she says she's alone
But she knows she's in love
Mr Winter, did you miss her?
For the three months you were gone
Had her waiting all night long
Mr Winter, don't forget her
She'll be waiting all along
Please just say you'll come back

And he's cold but he keeps you warm
Cause his love still burns for you
And you don't know what's in store
But you both know what is true

Oh she says she's alone
But she knows she's in love
Mr Winter, did you miss her?
For the three months you were gone
Had her waiting all night long
Mr Winter, don't forget her
She'll be waiting all along
Please just say you'll come back

Whoa oh, whoa oh, whoa oh oh
Whoa oh, whoa oh, whoa oh oh
But you said that you'd be back home
Didn't want to see her all alone
All the things that you put her through
Don't know why she's coming back to you
But you said that you'd be back home
Didn't want to see her all alone
All the things that you put her through
Don't know why she's coming back to you

Mr Winter, did you miss her?
For the three months you were gone
Had her waiting all night long
Mr Winter, don't forget her
She'll be waiting all along
Please just say you'll come back

Mr Winter, did you miss her?
For the three months you were gone
Had her waiting all night long
Mr Winter, don't forget her
She'll be waiting all along
Please just say you'll come back home

    Song MeaningI feel like these lyrics are being taken a bit literal with the 'three months winter' thing. In my opinion, he's called Mr. Winter because he was cold enough to leave/abandoned her. And obviously he left for three months. I don't really think they meant the actual season.

    But that's just my thought.

    General Commenti love this song.
    The only thing that bothers me is that winter isn't only gone for 3 months!

    General CommentI totally just thought of the whole Kennedy/Gabi drama that was floating around
    when listening to this the other day.

    But it sounds like the other side of "Ho Ho Hopefully" if you ask me.
    Ho Ho Hopefully was all about seeing someone left at home,
    and this seems to be all about waiting for them to come back.

    General CommentI think it's about a guy who leaves in the summer, so he's 'Mr. Winter' and that would explain the three months thing.
