Deep in the heart of winter an invincible summer lies.
Deep in the heart of winter there are blue and sunny skies.
Deep in the heart of winter, I found my Paradise
and I saw it there the other day,
deep in your eyes.
Wine from the sunlit slopes of Spain and the south of France
- Music that keeps your hopes alive and lets you love and laugh and sing and dance.
Curled up in my cocoon by the light of the winter moon, I read your book Albert Camus,
now I'm singing your song back across the sea,
from Montreal to Olde Paree-
Cause some lovely things in life last through time and all eternity,
and I'm singing these lines back across the sea from me to you Albert Camus.
I m singing these lines back across the sea from Montreal to Olde Paree.
After spending an afternoon in a bookshop on Sherbrooke Street, I emerged to see the street lights coming on the lampposts. To my incredible surprise I saw in the light of the wrought iron lamp posts, words carved in stone that had inspired this song a few months earlier:
" DEEP IN THE HEART OF WINTER AN INVINCIBLE SUMMER LIES"
by Albert Camus ~ the great resistance fighter for liberty and author in Paris long ago.
I recorded the song you hear here at the piano as "Sherbrooke Street". This title evolved to become "SUBLIMATION STREET", with love to the free world and my ancestral France from which the WYSES had come from France to Ireland many years ago.
