  • Oh the bitter winds are coming in
    And I'm already missing the summer
    Stockholm's cold but I've been told
    I was born to endure this kind of weather
    When it's you I find like a ghost in my mind
    I am defeated and I gladly wear the crown

    I'll be your Emmylou and I'll be your June
    If you'll be my Gram and my Johnny too
    No, I'm not asking much of you
    Just sing little darling, sing with me

    Now so much I know that things just don't grow
    If you don't blessed them with your patience
    And I've been there before I held up the door
    For every stranger with a promise

    But I'm holding back, that's the strength that I lack
    Every morning keeps returning at my window
    And it brings me to you and I won't just pass through
    But I'm not asking for a storm

    I'll be your Emmylou and I'll be your June
    If you'll be my Gram and my Johnny too
    No, I'm not asking much of you
    Just sing little darling, sing with me

    And yes I might have lied to you
    You wouldn't benefit from knowing of the truth
    I was frightened but I held fast
    I need you now at long last

    I'll be your Emmylou and I'll be your June
    If you'll be my Gram and my Johnny too
    No, I'm not asking much of you
    Just sing little darling, sing with me

    I'll be your Emmylou and I'll be your June
    If you'll be my Gram and my Johnny too
    No, I'm not asking much of you
    Just sing little darling, sing with me
    Just sing little darling, sing with me Writer/s: Johanna Kajsa Soederberg, Klara Maria Soederberg
