A Hazy Shade Of Winter Lyrics

by Paul Simon

Time, time
Time, see what's become of me
While I looked around for my possibilities

I was so hard to please
Look around
Leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hear the Salvation Army band
Down by the riverside's
Bound to be a better ride
Than what you've got planned

Carry your cup in your hand
And look around
Leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hang on to your hopes, my friend
That's an easy thing to say
But if your hopes should pass away
Simply pretend that you can build them again

Look around
The grass is high
The fields are ripe
It's the spring time of my life

Seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Won't you stop and remember me
At any convenient time?

Funny how my memory skips
Looking over manuscripts
Of unpublished rhyme

Drinking my vodka and lime
I look around
Leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter
