Don Mclean – Winter Has Me In Its Grip lyrics

Winter has me in it's grip
Think I'll take a summer trip
On a sunny sailing ship
Where the shells lie in the sand.
I feel so lonely,
I'm too young to feel this old.
I need you and you only
When the weather gets this cold.
No use in going
'cause it's cold inside my heart
And it's always snowing
Since the day we broke apart.
I try to run from winter
Like the spring and summer run to fall
But when the weather's in you
There's no hiding place at all.
