I found it very strange, that during the hottest days of the year, I suddenly felt bleak and gloomy. Again I started to think the bright future was slipping from my grasp, and I was stuck in this state forever.
I forgot which particular song actually made me start compiling all these ‘wintery’ songs, took me back to those cold, cold days when I was cycling to school through small cobblestone alleys.
So just in case you’re in the same boat with me, enjoy this non-stop winter breeze.
