Something Different: Hilary Kole sings “Blackberry Winter”

August 28, 2011

Here is a performance by Hilary Kole of the Alec Wilder classic “Blackberry Winter” – quite a good rendition of this song.  I’ll paste the words below the video.

Blackberry winter comes without a warning
Just when you think that spring’s around to stay
So you wake up on a cold rainy morning
And wonder what on earth became of May.
Blackberry winter only lasts a few days,
Just long enough to get you feeling sad
When you think of all the love that you wasted
On someone whom you never really had.
I’ll never get over losing you
But I’ve had to learn that life goes on
And the memories grow dim like a half forgotten song
‘Til the blackberry winter reminds me you are gone.
And I get so lonely, most of all in springtime
I wish I could enjoy the first of May
But I know it means that blackberry winter
Is not too far away.
