January in July

lyrics

Sophia one summer’s day got a picture perfect of her man,
except he was looking the other way

were it just another girl, that would be serious
but with her sister, well, what is there to say?

It was January in July, when Sophia looked her in the eye.

she kept what she saw to herself, thinking she was just crazy: “don’t be such a baby, he’s just a man with wandering eyes....”

She found the more she tried not to believe her eyes,
the more that it developed, a picture materialized.

January in July, when Sophia looked her in the eye.
January in July, when Sophia looked them in the eye.

Almost August when he broke the lie looked at her and sighed
“Sophia, I’ve something to tell ya, it may come as a surprise...”

she called him a son of a b!tch, he said “honey, I can fix this...”
she drew a breath and fixed him she did...
what is there to say? it’s still

January in July.
When Sophia looked her in the eye.

It’s Still
January in July.
When Sophia looks her in the eye.
