Simon & Garfunkel – A Hazy Shade of Winter

Lyrics

Time, time, time, see what’s become of me
While I looked around for my possibilities

I was so hard to please
Don’t look around
The leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hear the Salvation Army band
Down by the riverside’s, there’s bound to be a better ride
Than what you’ve got planned

Carry your cup in your hand
And look around
Leaves are brown, now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hang on to your hopes, my friend
That’s an easy thing to say
But if your hopes should pass away
Simply pretend that you can build them again
Look around
The grass is high
The fields are ripe
It’s the springtime of my life

Seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Won’t you stop and remember me
At any convenient time?
Funny how my memory skips while looking over manuscripts
Of unpublished rhyme
Drinking my vodka and lime
I look around
Leaves are brown, now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter
Look around
Leaves are brown
There’s a patch of snow on the ground
Look around
Leaves are brown
There’s a patch of snow on the ground
Look around
Leaves are brown
There’s a patch of snow on the ground

    • Great music deserves this attention, Cynthia. 🙂
      Whenever they show their concert in Central Park, you can be sure that I stay in the room and watch.

    • I love to get the older vinyls out and play them, John. Lucky me – I managed to get a ‘new’ needle in time. Simon & Garfunkel, Queen, Al Stewart… Listening on that old device brings back memories – more than listening to the same songs on the internet radio (e.g. KYA).

  1. Wow! This is new to me, I thought I knew all their songs; own lots of their LPs, Cds and seen them (separately) live. Delighted to hear this. Thank you for sharing.

    • Isn’t it nice how even our favourite artists still surprise us, Annika? It is great to find new gems. One of my discoveries: The wellknown ‘Rootbeer Rag’ – an instrumental by – Billy Joel!
