Seasons End

Seasons End

Getting close to seasons end
I heard somebody say
That it might never snow again
In England
Snow flakes in a new-born fist
Sledging on a hill
Are these things we’ll never see
In England

We’ll tell our children’s children why
We grew so tall and reached so high
We left our footprints in the earth
And punched a hole right through the sky

We’ll tell them how we changed the world
And how we tamed the sea
And seasons they will never know
In England

So watch the old world melt away
A loss regrets could never mend
You never miss it till it’s gone
So say goodbye, say goodbye

We’ll tell our children’s children why
We grew so tall and reached so high
You never miss it till it’s gone
So say goodbye, say goodbye
To seasons end

I just thought I add this little snipped that Steve has to say about the lyric.

A nostalgic lament about cold English Winters and their loss to global warming. Once you’ve got your own children you start to think about what kind of a world we’re leaving them with… and which of your dearest memories might be impossibilities in the future.
