  3. "I was one as you were one
    And we were too so much in love forever
    I loved the white socks that you wore
    But you don't wear white socks no more, now you're a woman

    I joked about your turned-up nose
    And criticized your school girl clothes
    But would I then have paced these roads to love you

    Seasons come and seasons go
    Bring forth the rain the sun and snow
    Make Valerie a woman and Valerie is lonely

    No more to roam on the snow hills of Hienton
    Undecided with the guardians of the older generation
    A doormat was a sign of welcome in the winter months to come
    And then the summer laughing through the castle ruins we'd run

    For the quadrangle sang to the sun
    And the grace of our feeling
    And the candle burned low
    As we talked of the future
    Underneath the ceiling

    There were tears in the sky
    And the clouds in your eyes they were just cover
    For your thighs were the cushions
    Of my love and yours for each other

    Seasons come and seasons go
    Bring forth the rain the sun and snow
    Make Valerie a woman and Valerie is lonely

    The songs still are sung, it was fun to be young
    But please don't be sad where 'ere you are
    I am who I am, you are who you are

    Now Valerie's a woman
    Now Valerie's a woman
    Now Valerie's a woman"

    ...I was young and crossed in love...lying in the snow of an Austrian mountain...

  4. Yes, nothing beats the feeling of being young and unhappily in love...
