IN THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE
Words and Music by James Durst 
1974, 1995 PhoeniXongs ASCAP

In the Northern Hemisphere
It's the winter of the year
An' I'm so glad that I am here
In California
O, California in the wintertime
I'd forgotten what it's like to feel the sunshine
And now it's mine

In the Northern Hemisphere
Not so very far from here
Lives a lady without fear
In Copenhagen
O, Copenhagen in the wintertime
She's forgotten what it's like to feel the sunshine
I'll give her mine

BRIDGE
And I tremble when you touch me
Like that island south of Iceland
Torn asunder by the fire
It's a wonder my desire
Doesn't melt you

In the Northern Hemisphere
Where Winter's blanket blurs frontiers
If you listen, you can hear
The earth is weeping
O, Sarajevo in the wintertime
When will you rise up from the mire to seize the sunshine?
Is this a sign?
A sign
