Anyman EP Track 3: "Winter Love" / by J.C. Hutchins

Anyman Cover

"Winter Love" is the third of six free folk songs from Anyman, written and performed by John Smith, which will be released on a weekly schedule here at

While a link to more songs was mentioned in John's 7th Son: 7 Days prequel story, J.C. wanted to provide all five songs to all 7th Son fans ... with a bonus track on the sixth week. Miami resident John Smith, a character in J.C.'s upcoming thriller 7th Son: Descent, is a man who dreams big ... but lives a small life. Determined to change his life's course, he recorded a five-song EP titled Anyman, and posted it to the Web. This occurred two weeks before the events seen in 7th Son: Descent.

Lyrics for this song appear beneath the audio player. Learn more about 7th Son: Descent’s print novel release here. Order your copy today.

"Winter Love" Lyrics

Don't gimme that bit about
"Every thing in its season"
That's only numbers and blocks on a page
Don't try to tell me there's no
Particular reason I won't go peacefully into the next phase

Don't tell me you don't recall
The first day of Springtime
The way we met was such a sweet cliche
Can't believe you would forget
The height of last summer
And how we spent each hour
Of the longest day

Don't pretend
You didn't plan this from the start
By Winter's end
Passion frozen in your heart
I never said I'd be an actor in this play
I don't intend
To walk away as winter fades to gray

I don't believe that you
Have found yourself a new prince
There's no one anywhere in the world like me
Don't tell me he was a surprise
Don't try to convince
What makes you think I even wanna be free

Don't care if the air you breathe
Comes cold from your lips
Don't matter to me if the trees have lost all their leaves
There ain't no golden bough
And I'll remain your king
