Sea Wolf: “The Cold, Dark, and The Silent”

The air was brisk and cold today in San Francisco. Thanks to global warming, (“climate change”) a previous week of highs is ultimately proceeded by exceeding lows. Oh, isn’t the weather just a metaphor for the changing mood? The growing need for warm comforting fires. The time when men decide they want to cuddle. Hot cocoa always sounds delicious.

During this period my musical interests change. Somber, darker, and soothing songs grow increasingly more appealing. Today, subconsciously my brain must have sensed this as I walked home from a coffee shop. My thoughts were cluttered with the repeating hook of Sea Wolf’s “The Cold, Dark, and The Silent.” The guitar strums like a somber lullaby as vocalist Alex Church sings, “If you were to roll, to roll down your window you’d find the wind / the ice / the trees /that sway like skeletons outside.” Yes, it’s winter time. Take a listen, let me know what you think is your “winter song.”

Sea Wolf “The Cold, Dark and The Silent” lyrics

Please don’t lie, don’t lie to me
that you’re not afraid, my love.
I know you well enough to know
you can’t be alone.

If you were to roll, to roll down your window
you’d find the wind, the ice, the trees
that sway like skeletons outside.

But when the cold, the dark, and the silence come
it’s like a sudden rush of water through your heart and lungs.

Please don’t fight, don’t fight with me
and fold your arms like it’s the end.
Can you smell the sweetness of the soil and snow in the wind?

So we’re lost, we’re lost out here on the plains, my love.
It’s only wind and ice and trees that wave from above.

But when the cold, the dark, and the silence come
it’s like a sudden rush of water through your heart and lungs.

When the cold, the dark, and the silence come
it’s like a sudden rush of water through your heart and lungs.

Don’t lie
Don’t cry

It’s over
It’s only the leaves, the trees
I’ll never leave you alone
In this car
In the dark, with the air getting so much colder.
It’s so clear outside here, in the moon and winter air.

But when the cold, the dark, and the silence come
it’s like a sudden rush of water through your heart and lungs.

When the cold, the dark, and the silence come
it’s like a sudden rush of water
it’s like a sudden rush of water
it’s like a sudden rush of water through your heart and lungs.

The cold, the dark and the silence.
The cold, the dark and the silence.
The cold, the dark and the silence.
The cold, the dark and the silence.
The cold, the dark and the silence.
The cold, the dark and the silence…
