Winter Sun (Esperanza Spalding)

Once autumn’s glow Has gone away And gray cotton clouds Blanket drowsy days You’re the winter sun Once fallen leaves Have lost their crunch And turn to confetti Brown and orange I know soon You’ll come tame the whip of the wind And bathe the naked branches with warmth and light When tired bones tremble From the cold One kiss of your warmth Heals the soul Shine winter sun Make this cold heart whole Once autumn’s glow Has gone away And gray cotton clouds Blanket drowsy days I know soon You’ll come tame the whip of the wind And bathe the naked branches with warmth and light You’re the winter sun
