lyrics

my blood it rises, i hope that it don't show
ah but she got that look in her eyes i'm wondering how she knows
well i don't belong here i'm singing to myself
should never have come here should've gone somewhere else

you can't find no place you're gonna settle down
when you're all torn up inside
these times are heavy they're gonna weigh me down
but it's wintertime and there's a fire that feels so right

there's a wood furnace fire burning i can smell it in the air
the kinda thing make you start thinking 'bout forgotten years
when i see the smoke rise up i know memories fade
but the feeling it's always here when i can't recall the days

the rain pouring down i was knocking on an antique door
in the dead of night she opened up and said "come on inside"
and i swear mama we've been here so many times before
when it's wintertime and there's a fire that feels so right

i've taken no notice of time since arriving here
and how i came and how i'll leave it's still unclear
for the trail's unmarked on which i tread upon
and though its labors have cut my skin my heart grows strong

i rode nine hundred miles to see my natalie
natalie say "it ain't gonna be enough this time"
she said it so loud, so proud and so easily
but it's wintertime and this fire still feels so right
when it's wintertime and there's a fire that feels so right
