Big Country - Winter Sky Lyrics




The stories of the world are sung
In places that were never young
I have counted every one

All the clouds will come to you
So the sun never comes through
And we will hide
From twenty years of winter sky

The faces of the world are hung
In places I was never born
Some will smile while others moan

All the clouds will come to you
So the sun never comes through
And we will hide
From twenty years of winter sky

Pictures of the world are shown
In places I have never known
Who will know who shaped the stone

All the clouds will come to you
So the sun never comes through
And we will hide
From twenty years of winter sky

Still it turns and says to me
In words that come uneasily
Answers are not meant to be

All the clouds will come to you
So the sun never comes through
And we will hide
From twenty years of winter sky

Big Country Winter Sky Comments
  1. Rashed Ala-Uddin

    Loved this band from the early days - my children love them now.

    Dec 16th 2019 - eighteen years of winter sky.
    Rest in peace.

  2. James Keffer

    This was one of favorite bands growing up love them

  3. Aaron50001

    What a beautiful track , bless you Stuart

  4. Alexander The Great

    One of the best live bands I've seen! Will love them forever! RIP Stuart, you were a genius!

  5. Rich Everakes

    Perfect ! I love this song. Stuart’s voice is haunting and his words are something that should be on a museum wall. BC is criminally underrated.

  6. Standardbred Adventures

    One of my favourite Big Country songs. Especially when live.

  7. lucid phreak

    I have to thumbs up every single reply .. Big Country did and still does give me chills like no other band.. Their later stuff got a bit boring to me - but the first 4 albums were pure GOLD. So honest, so gritty but so beautiful.

  8. Derek Goins

    I'll never know if my life will mean anything but this song means much to me

  9. TheKnightWho SaysNi

    "thrown away on a B side" says Stuart - too right thrown away! Most bands never write songs this good in their career.

  10. The Gatsbys

    always loved this beautiful song

  11. James Wunderlich

    More people need to know who this band is! Every song they did is gold!

  12. Vizz Z

    Stuart was a musical genius...x

  13. Roland

    Glorious

  14. Sadowsky1965

    The harmonies that from verse goes to the chorus are amazing

  15. Aidzo McG

    brilliant

  16. Stuart Adamson - In A Big Country: Tribute Channel

    Bruce and I recorded this ourselves at Palladium in Edinburgh as a B-Side but this time I actually think
    we got a great song. The bass, bass drum and snare were played on a synth at separate times, in fact I think
    Bruce did the bass drum and I did the snare. Thrown away on a B-Side I think.

    A fantastic tune, such an underrated band
