C             F  G        C    F      G       C     
On a winter's Sunday I go   to clear away the snow
    F         G      C      F  G
And green the ground below
C             F  G       C
April all an ocean away
   F               G                C    F           G         C    F  G
Is this the better way to spend the day? keeping the winter at bay

Chorus:
F             G                C              F
What were the words I meant to say before you left?
     C                  F                         G
When I could see your breath lead where you were going to
C              F    G      C
Maybe I should just let it be
    F             G                C
And maybe it will all come back to me
      F    G    C
Sing: O January O

How I lived a childhood in snow, and all my teens in tow
Stuffed in strata of clothes
Pale the winter days after dark
Wandering the gray memorial park, a fleeting beating of hearts 

What were the words I meant to say before she left?
When I could see her breath lead where she was going to
Maybe I should just let it be
And maybe it will all come back to me
      F    G   F    G    C   
Sing: O Janu-, O January O
