"Winter soldier, life is a rush. The subway shoots past and you’re lost in the crush.

Winter soldier, a face in the crowd. You face the music but the bass is too loud."

Oh, winter soldier. In cubicles of pale. Winter soldier, lift up your head. Your comrades have gone but you’re not dead. Winter soldier, life is bliss. How long has it been, since you’ve taken a kiss?

\"\"

Oh winter soldier, in funeral garb. Life’s barbed you red. Where’s that growl, you’ll die when you’re dead.

Winter soldier, you’re in a long fight. How lone has it been, since you’ve slept through the night? Oh winter soldier, don’t wait for spring - that bird is that voice you’ve heard in your dream.

Oh wintry soldier, heart in a flame. You want to walk, but your legs are lame.

Winter soldier, life is a rush. The subway shoots past and you’re lost in the crush. Winter soldier, a face in the crowd. You face the music but the bass is too loud.

For there’s life in each pulse and your voice drips with sweat, it’s not winter now if you haven’t slept.

Oh winter soldier, give me a kiss. It’s summer in my heart and you’re still missed. You failed and you died and you lied. But your heart’s still true, and in the back of my eye, skies are still blue.

Immortal muse, rhythms my heart. Timeless orchestra singing the dark.

You flip a coin in their jar, and the ragged band nods. And wow, what, hey.



Oh you there, winter soldier. Have you lost your way.”


Oh hey there chap, oh yes I think
I have. Care if I borrow a light?”

And all through the endless night, fight for that dying bright.
