About "Late December"

The contrast of this aging “summer boy” and his outdoors-loving daughter who is more than happy to run out into the cold.

Late December

Late December
The nights get so long
Turning embers
In the dark before dawn

Late December
For a summer boy
Feels so wrong
Can’t remember
That summer noise
Where has the time gone

In the gray light, your tired eyes
Bring the daylight to my winter skies
What you say might remind me time flies

Deeper water
Where I tend to go
Gentle daughter
Covered in snow

In the gray light, your tired eyes
Bring the daylight to my winter skies
What you say might remind me time flies

Left to my own devices
I’d get so old
You don’t think twice as
You run out into the cold

Does the great bear
In the night sky
Know to play where
You’ll be running by

In the gray light, your tired eyes
Bring the daylight to my winter skies
What you say might remind me time flies
