{Music Moment} Spring to Come


"Spring to Come" by John Butler Trio has been playing on repeat this week. 

There is something about the end of winter that is very hard for me to ride out. I begin to be constantly melancholy, and have trouble getting motivated to do anything. I feel as if I'm sitting in the darkness, not-so-patiently waiting for the light to come back on. 

I try to be in the moment and enjoy what comes with the season; however, the cold fights me and freezes my bones. I am just standing by until spring thaws me again.

John Butler's lyrics are great, but what I love about this song (especially the acoustic version featured below) is the musicality. "Spring to Come" dances to a rhythm that makes me feel lighter and swing with the cadence. 

This week it is finally a little warmer and the sun shone all last weekend. We are still expecting rain in the coming days, but warm rain is a little easier to endure.

I saw that there is even more snow falling in the Northeast of the States, so to all of you stay warm! And for the rest of us on the Northern Hemisphere, let's wait for spring to come together!



Spring to Come 
by John Butler Trio

Lost my love, lost my light
I can't find them anymore
If there's something I could give
I would have given it before now...cause
I came back a little broken
Things don't fit anymore
And I wait for spring to come
But how long, tell me how long
'Cause I wither at my post
I'm walking like a ghost, alone
How long tell me how long, how long

Somewhere out there on the horizon

Maybe there's a glimmer of hope
Maybe it's just a mirage
'Cause you never know
And maybe things have changed
Storm clouds pass take their rains

And I wait for spring to come
But how long, tell me how long
'Cause I wither at my post
I'm walking like a ghost, alone
How long tell me how long, how long

Out of the darkness, only light can come
After a lonely long night comes the sun [x4]

    1. By the way. Are you familiar with Angus and Julia Stone? I think you'd like their music. Their latest song is Chateau.

  6. Amanda,

    Thanks for the introduction to John Butler. I can relate to how you feel. I'm trying to live in the moment because I'm at the stage in life where I see days fleeting by so dang fast that all I want to do is hold on to each one just a little longer even when things are less desirable. Our weather forecast is calling for warm weather to push in today followed by slightly cooler temps and rain for the weekend. Anytime our nights are above freezing then I'm a happy girl. I will certainly check out more of Butler's mewsic on YouTube. Have a good day and please feel free to join Monday's Music Moves Me gang anytime! ;)
