Blackberry winter comes without a warning
Just when you think that spring’s around to stay
So you wake up on a cold, rainy morning
And wonder what on earth became of May

Blackberry winter only lasts a few days
Just long enough to get you feeling sad
When you think of all the love that you wasted
On someone who you really never had

I’ll never get over losing you
But I had to learn that life goes on
And the memories grow dim, like a half-forgotten song
Till the blackberry winter reminds me  you’re gone

And I get so lonely, most of all in springtime
I wish I could enjoy the first of May
But I know it means that blackberry winter is not too far away
