Relient K: In Like a Lion

In Like a Lion (Always Winter)
Relient K

It’s always nice to look out the window
And see those very first few flakes of snow
Later on we can go outside
And create the impression of an angel
That just fell from the sky

When February rolls around I’ll roll my eyes
Turn a cold shoulder to these even colder skies
And by the fire my heart it heaves a sigh
For the green grass waiting on the other side

It’s always winter, but never Christmas
It seems this curse just can’t be lifted
Yet in the midst of all this ice and snow
Our hearts stay warm cause they are filled with hope.

It’d be so nice to look out the window
And see the leaves on the trees begin to show
The birds would congregate and sing
A song of birth, a song of newer things

The wind will call and the sun will shine
I’ll go outside and I’ll squint my eyes
But for now I will simply just withdraw
Sit here, and wish for this world to thaw

But everything it changed overnight
This dying world you brought it back to life
And deep inside I felt things shifting,
Everything was melting away
And you gave us the most beautiful of days

When it’s always winter, but never Christmas
Sometimes it feels like you’re not with us
Yet deep inside our hearts we know
That you are here
And we will not lose hope
