Doug Ashdown – Winter In America lyrics

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

    This song is written by an australian guy who left his country and his love behind when he moved to america. Ofcourse the climate overthere is different, it's winter in december and in Australia that's when the summer is at it's peak. He's sad about how cold the winter in America is while his tru love is with a new lover back in oz. The frangipani is a typical Australian flower that blooms in December.
