“A Winter’s Tale”

I know this song from the fantastic Christmas album that Elaine Paige posted in the mid-80s, at the peak of her pop career.

Little Lew’s short life lasted from December 2002 – March 2003. I honestly don’t remember if it snowed in March 2003, and I was listening to this song among “snow songs”, or else the lyrics just hit me the following December, but this is one of the songs I always associate with Little Lew, and it still makes me cry.

“The nights are colder now
Maybe I should close the door
And anyway the snow has covered all your footsteps
And I can follow you no more
The fire still burns at night
The memories are warm and clear
But everybody knows
It’s hard to be alone this time of year
It was only a winter’s tale
Just another winter’s tale
And why should the world take notice
Of one more love that’s failed?
A love that can never be
Though it meant a lot to you and me
On a world-wide scale
We’re just another winter’s tale
While I stand alone
A bell is ringing far away
I wonder if you’re here
I wonder if you’re listening
I wonder where you are today
Good luck, I wish you well
For all that wishes may be worth
I hope that love and strength
Are with you for the length
Of your time on earth
It was only a winter’s tale
Just another winter’s tale
And why should the world take notice
Of one more love that’s failed?
It’s a love that can never be
Though it meant a lot to you and me
On a world-wide scale
We’re just another winter’s tale
It was only a winter’s tale
Just another winter’s tale
And why should the world take notice
Of one more love that’s failed?
It’s a love that can never be
Though it meant a lot to you and me
On a world-wide scale
We’re just another winter’s tale
We’re just another winter’s tale”
