Gospel Songs Mp3

Alex Henry Foster releases the second video and single for “Winter Is Coming In,” from his live triple-vinyl / double-CD and concert film Standing Under Bright Lights that is set to release April 16 and available to preorder now from Hopeful Tragedy Records. The project was recorded live in front of a sold out Club Soda (July 2019) while Foster headlined the Montreal International Jazz Festival.

Filled with an intense, sprechstimme-driven opening followed by hopeful-expressed lyrics sung amidst a wash of instrumentation that melt into a quiet, peaceful resonance, Foster wrote “Winter Is Coming In” after wrestling with his own broken childhood, abuses of which he has been a victim, functional depression and thoughts of taking his own life.

“The amount of time I must have spent musing, contemplating, struggling and raging for that song…I was obsessed with ‘authenticity,’ the measure of consciousness it requires to be honest, the nature of redemption, the meaning of being free, contrition, confession, the difference between hope and truth,” Foster shares. He realized the key to the song “wasn’t about understanding the concept of confession and faith…it was allowing those words to loudly carry a burden I was usually holding in the loneliest of all silences…”

Lyrics:
So I heard another winter’s coming

It might be hard to believe, looking back at it now
As if my world lost its senses so many, many years ago
Like old wooden horses turning through childhood memories
But pure laughter doesn’t come that easy anymore
As we keep turning around, looking for places to land our long saddened days

Have I lost, have I lost my senses?

May we be saints, may we be whores or just like a little bit of both, like much of everything else
I guess in the end, it’s not that much about the truth
But how good we became at turning late night illusions into a bright morning view
It’s never that easy I suppose, to kneel down with a smile
When we kept denying our souls from the magic shining through
Have I lost?
Have I lost my senses?
Have I lost?
Have I lost my senses?
I don’t know?
Have I lost?
Have I lost everything?
Have I lost?
Have I lost?

Our winter’s coming in
Our winter’s coming in, I heard
Our winter’s coming in
Our winter’s coming in

I wish I could say it’s looking at the sun that I’ve lost all sight of hopeful colors
That I’ve turned blind to others, others’ hearts beating their breezes and gentle kisses
And I’m laying down, my shoulders stroked, and I’m crumbling on dirty ground,
I’m tired and weary, I’m tired
If only I could stop
If only I could stop the overflowing mournful sand from falling from my hourglass eyes
I swear, I would
My darkened ruins, into a brand new let go filled with wonders
With wonders, with wonders, with wonders

Have I lost my senses?
I don’t know
Have I lost, have I lost, have I lost my senses?
Have I lost?

Our winter’s coming in
Our winter’s coming in, I heard
Our winter’s coming in
Our winter’s coming in
Our winter’s coming in, I heard
Our winter’s coming in
Our winter’s coming in

Have I lost my senses?
Have I lost my senses?
If only I could stop for just one second
I would kneel down at your feet, kneel down at your feet
If only I could stop for just one second
I swear I would tell you everything
I would tell you everything I kept inside for so long
Have I lost my senses?
Have I lost my senses?
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know
If only I could stop for just one second
I swear, I swear
If only I could stop for just one second
If only I could stop for one, just one second
If only I could stop for just one second
I would tell you, I would tell you everything
I would tell you everything
I don’t care anymore

I’ve lost everything

Goodbye youthful shivers, goodbye
Goodbye youthful shivers, goodbye
Majestic halo, my dazzling twilight
Goodbye, goodbye

Goodbye youthful shivers, goodbye
Goodbye youthful shivers, goodbye
Majestic halo, my dazzling twilight
Goodbye, goodbye
