"Seasons Of Wither" as written by and Steven Tyler....
Blues hearted lady sleepy was she
Love for the devil brought her to me
Tears of a thousand drawn to her sin
Seasons of wither holdin' me in

Ooh woe is me I feel so badly for you
Ooh woe is me I feel so sadly for you
In time bound to lose your mind
Live on borrowed time
Take the wind right out of your sail

Fireflies dance in the heat of
Hound dogs that bay at the moon
My ship leaves in the midnight
Can't say I'll be back too soon

They awaken far far away
Heat of my candle show me the way
Tears of a thousand drawn to her sin
Seasons of wither holdin' me in

Ooh woe is me I feel so badly for you
Ooh woe is me I feel so sadly for you
In time bound to lose your mind
Live on borrowed time
Take the wind right out of your sail

    General CommentIn aerosmith's autobiography, steven tyler says that this song was about when he and joey kramer (the drummer) lived in a barn house type place outside of boston, that he was inspired by the snow in the winter and the bare trees and stuff like that. I'm not really sure if thats really what the song means but it is an amazing song. Steven tyler's best writting.

    General CommentOk this is a quote from Aerosmith's autobiography Walk This Way
    "Seasons of Wither was about the winter landscape near this house I was living in with Joey near an old chicken farm. I used to lie in my bed at dawn, listening to the wind in the bare trees, how lonely and melancholy it sounded. I was pissed off about my taxes and getting mad helps me to write, so one night I went down to the basement where we had a rug on the floor and a couple of boxes for furniture and took a few Tunials and a few Seconals and I scooped up this guitar Joey gave me, this dumpster guitar, and I lit some incense and wrote Seasons of Wither."-Steven Tyler

    General Comment"being from the first album of Aerosmith's selling there souls, whether all the band or less, album 2 was asmith's covenant album, hence, as angel's "Get Your Wings", angels of what? don't be so naive...."

    Get Your Wings= the band just got its wing logo

    sorry but you are reaching with the religious scenerios. YEs at that age I'm sure they questioned god a lot, but they were also so high they should have died almost everyday of their life and they were screwing groupies after the shows, not exactly a group of guys trying to preach to the masses

    General CommentI read Walk This Way and I agree with aerosmithgirl617, it was about a really cold long desolate winter outside of the Boston area when they lived on that farm and it was snowing and the wind was blowing and the trees had no leaves. It just was Steven's perspective of the long hard winter day and how depressing it could be.

    General CommentWell, I love this song...(one of my faves) and unfortunately it seemed to affect me the most when i was strung out on dope. If you have ever sat around dope-sick with no help on the way...and pondering the way things are in your life...it really hits me like a knife in the heart. But i think there is so so much guilt and pain involved in trying to just cop every day....not to mention keeping a rock band alive that artists like Steve have at least one release that most "regular" folks do not. They can write songs about their pain. And i think the part of the song may be guilt from all the ugly things involved in that kind of life. My personal meaning is that one time i turned a girl on for her first time....and years later..i was "clean"...but she was my cross to bare and never recovered and deid. It hurts to feel responsible for such a messed-up thing. And it hurts....a lot. But thats MY OWN meaning

    General CommentI know what it means, I looked it up: It's about Steven Tyler's [lead singer] when he was in this drug depression, that's about it, I wish that there was more to it, but their isn't.
