“Winter in America” released by Doug Ashdown

The harbour’s misty in the morning love, oh, how I miss December
The frangipani opens up to kiss the salty air
I know you’re gettin’ ready for the office
I suppose he’s still there with you, sharing our morning sun
Winter in America is cold and I just keep growing older
I wish I could have known enough of love to leave love enough alone

I’ve learned something of love I wish I’d known before you left me
But it’s funny how you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone
And I hope you’re getting all the love you ever wanted
But I wish I was there with you, sharing our morning sun

I wake into the sadness of the rain and making love to strangers
And wishing I had known enough of love to leave love enough alone
Winter in America is cold and I just keep growing older
I wish I could have known enough of love to leave love enough alone
Winter in America is cold and I just keep growing older
I wish I could have known enough of love to leave love enough alone
