Blackberry Winter & Heartache Stew

by Stephen Simmons



Written and recorded during the winter of 2020/2021



The snow was falling
I was sad
The sun was hiding
Behind white clouds

A song was calling
I knew that
I might as well listen
Because I’m trapped

Stuck in a room
With a lonely view
Blackberry winter
And heartache stew

Finally came
Still joy was hiding
Just stayed away

I don’t know how
A year fly so fast
While the days
Endlessly last

Chorus 2X
