Must have been the right month
Must have been a good time
Must have counted every cloud in the sky that night
Every single glass of wine

Must have learned some home truths
Sittin' in that cool grass
Must have counted every blade in that emerald field
Every shooting star that passed

Should have had a talk with God
Sittin' in the great unknown
Watchin' all the lovers in the world get together
Sittin' in Heaven all alone

And we were love's knot after summer
Tied together in the dead of winter
Wrapped up with spring fever in the air
Bound together in the autumn
Every month means a little somethin'
But January is the month that cares

Must have kissed you 'till I hurt you
Must have been a wild night
Must have rolled in the ashes at the break of day
Rag dolls in the mornin' light

Must have found a secret place
Hidin' in our own world
Must have counted every smile on your sweet, sweet lips
Every single sound we heard

Should have had a talk with God
Sittin' in the great unknown
Watchin' all the lovers in the world get together
Sittin' in Heaven all alone

And we were love's knot after summer
Tied together in the dead of winter
Wrapped up with spring fever in the air
Bound together in the autumn
Every month means a little somethin'
But January is the month that cares
January is the month that cares
