Something as small as a keyboard and a microphone
Can tell you the world is endless and you're not alone
but also that you're not a child and that you can't go home
And so I started not knowing where
I'd go or if anyone would care
winter of 88
And if I'd been the toast of London I would still be old
And if I'd been the king of New York I would still be old
In the end we're all just trying to keep out the cold
and the high score of who will be dead and gone
before the world sees another one
winter of 88
We'll sing these songs through all the winters
And if no one remembers we were ever here
there'll be echoes, there'll be traces.
I'll keep on singing into the void
I dedicate this to every one of you
May you get through the winter
and find some hope
and find some peace
and find some love

"Wintery acoustic songs about love hate, death and other stuff". And swearing. In Scottish.
Not much more anyone could ask for!
Honestly, sometimes life is just miserable, and there has to be a soundtrack for wallowing in that misery. This is it, and in a strangely uplifting way. Wind in the Willows
