Winter by Joshua Radin

What do you think?

“Winter” was released in 2004 and is most famous for being in an episode of the TV show “Scrubs”. Joshua Radin told American Songwriter magazine he wrote the song as he was walking through his neighbourhood in New York and “I kept thinking ‘I should know who I am by now.’ And that became the first line of my first song. It came out of frustration. [Winter] is a song that I hear people really have been moved by. A lot of people play that song at funerals, so I know it’s an emotional response people are having.”

 

Lyrics

I should know who I am by now
I walk the record stands somehow
Thinking of winter
Your name is the splinter inside me
While I wait
And I remember the sound 
Of your November downtown
And I remember the truth
A warm December with you
But I don’t have to make this mistake
And I don’t have to stay this way
If only I would wait
The walk has all been cleared by now
Your voice is all I hear somehow
Calling out winter
Your voice is the splinter inside me
While I wait
And I remember the sound
Of your November downtown
And I remember the truth
 A warm December with you
But I don’t have to make this mistake
And I don’t have to stay this way
If only I would wait
The walk has all been cleared by now
Your voice is all I hear somehow
Calling out winter
Your voice is the splinter inside me
While I wait
I could have lost myself in rough blue waters in your eyes
And I miss you still
I remember the sound
Of your November downtown
And I remember the truth
A warm December with you
But I don’t have to make this mistake
And I don’t have to stay this way
If only I would wait
