winter song lyrics – crash test dummies

well, i can’t say that i miss my old dog much
yet, i’ve never looked back since i left home long ago
but i hoped a trip into the country
would help remind me all the things i used to know

that’s what i came for
that’s what i hoped for

there once was good blood in the breeze here
we rode across the lake each new year
what have i remembered?
what did this used to be?

the ice, it used to shine upon our river
it was a mirror that the cold dark water
ran away deep beneath
and here were many years of winter drownings
i kept track of these things as they were told to me

that’s what i came for
that’s what i hoped for

there once was good blood in the breeze here
we rode across the lake each new year
what have i remembered?
what did this used to be?

the changes of the year were once a blessing
but this year they’re the seasons of my discontent
but i cannot rewrite my old diaries
i can only recall all the things that came and went

that’s what i came for
that’s what i hoped for

there once was good blood in the breeze here
we rode across the lake each new year
what have i remembered?
what did this used to be?

what have i remembered?
what did this used to be?
