The song title is evocative of the frightful event of the murder of the Romanov family, referring to the summer month of July as having been transmuted into winter by the tragedy of the family’s death.
The song, nevertheless, does not have a sombre feeling, but it shines with hope for the coming spring, rendering the family an eternal symbol of love’s victory against all evil.
The music video follows the song lyrics in a “backward movement”, starting with the events relating to the tragic murder, moving back to the captivity period, and ending with the happy images of the family at their merriest days.
JULY WINTER TEARS
ORIGINAL THEME SONG BY GEON
Tears on the ground, crystal and brown,
far away voices without any sound.
Sunny July, where have you gone?
Tearfully, winter rains in my soul.
But spring will shine, children will laugh,
all tears will dry away in the sunshine of love.
