In The Winter


いまから10年くらい前でしょうか?どんな状態か見ようとして、持ち上げたジャニス・イアンの「Between The Lines」のジャケットはボロボロで、崩れ落ちてしまいました。






“In The Winter”  Janis Ian
The days are okay

I watch the TV in the afternoon

If I get lonely
The sound of other voices
Other rooms are near to me, not afraid

The operator
She tells the time, it’s good for a laugh

There’s always radio
And for a dime I can talk to God

Dial-a-prayer、Are you there? Do you care?
Are you there?

And in the winter extra blankets for the cold
Fix the heater, getting old

I am wiser now, you know, and still as big a fool
Concerning you

I met your friend
She’s very nice, what can I say?

It was an accident
I never dreamed we’d meet again this way
You’re looking well, not afraid

You have a lovely home
Just like a picture, no, I live alone

I found it easier
You must remember how I never liked

The party life、Up all night、Lovely wife
You have a lovely wife

And in the winter extra blankets for the cold
Fix the heater, getting old

You are with her now, I know
I’ll live alone forever, not together now
