"Winter in July" as written by and Loretta/simenon Heywood....
Look around wonder why
We can live a life that's never satisfied
Lonely hearts troubled minds
Looking for a way that we can never find
Many roads are ahead of us
With choices to be made
But life's just one of the
Games we play
There is no special way
Make the best of what's given you
Everything will come in time
Why deny yourself
Don't just let life pass you by
Like winter in July

Future dreams can never last
When you find yourself still living in the past
Keep moving on to higher ground
Looking for the way you thought could not be found
We may not know the reason why
We're born into this world
Where a man only lives to die
His story left untold
Make the best of what's given you
Everything will come in time
Why deny yourself
Don't just let life pass you by
Like winter in July

And we may not know the reason why
We're born into this world
Where a man only lives to die
His story left untold
Make the best of what's given you
Everything will come in time
Why deny yourself
Don't just let life pass you by
Like winter in July

    General CommentThis is a beautiful under appreciated song. Its sound is not typical of Sarah Brightman's work. It is not an opera or classical song. It is instead a pop song, with a good consistent beat. For whatever reason, I seem to listen to this song only in summer or winter! I first heard this song in Feb, 2003. If there is any song that comes close to what my conception of life is it is this song. This song does not contain my philosphy of life, but it comes close. Every word of this song could be mine.The point of tgis song is although we may not understand life and although it is never happy for long, we should try to make the best of what we have, although it might not be much. Some it seems are given everything they want. Others have only have ever known a lonely heart and troubled mind. It seems to them that life is dark and bleak, and that the only escape is either death or if they have had past happiness, to live in that. That you should not live in the past is a generally accepted saying. In some ways, its been the theme of my life. This song says that'' future dreams canl never last/ when you find yourself still living in the past''. When you live in the past, you find yourself stagnant forever the same, emotionally. If you want to preserve a experience living in the past seems a good option. You can have your lost happiness even if everything else is gone. I think people shoudld be given time. Eventually everyone will let go of the past, for the most part. I don't think I ever will, because I know I've had my happiness. But otherwise, you shoudn't live in the past. I love love this song. It is tragic, optimistic, and meaningful. That's what life is.

    General CommentRather satisfying. Making the best of our lives...Sarah not only hits the right notes (as always) but notes that penetrate your heart. Sometimes the best things come when you wait. Take your time and things will unfurl. So I agree with you Christianna. P.s. my favorite part of the song is at 4.31 minutes. Brilliant!
