funny time of year lyrics – beth gibbons & rustin man

these silent words of conversation
hold me now this adulation
oh, see me now
oh, it’s easy now

falling like a silent paper
holding on to what may be

and i only hear
only hear the rain

and many rains turn to rivers
winter’s here and there ain’t nothing gonna change
the winds are blowing, telling me all i hear
oh, it’s a funny time of year
there’ll be no blossom on the trees

turning now i see no reason
the voice of love so out of season
i need you now but you can’t see me now
i’m traveling with no destination
still hanging on to what may be

it’s a funny time of year
i can see there’ll be no blossom on the trees
and time spent crying has taken me in this year
oh, it’s a funny time of year
there’ll be no blossom on the trees

falling like a silent paper
holding on to what may be
it’s a funny time of year

i can see there’ll be no blossom on the trees
and time spent crying has taken me in this year

it’s a funny time of year
i can see no blossom, no blossom on the trees

falling like a silent paper
holding on to what may be
it’s a funny time of year

i can see
there’ll be no blossom on the trees
and time spent crying has taken me in this year

it’s a funny time of year
i can see no blossom, no blossom on the trees
