Winter's Song Lyrics

Winter's Song - Cowboy Junkies

She says 'it's cold where you brought me'

 

He says 'Darling don't worry

 

You can stay in my arms

Until the springtime comes

 

We'll let the snow drift around us

 

And wait for the robin and the crocus

 

To tell us that our love has again found the sun'

 

Lone oak stands tall

 

Bare arms scratch the sky

 

Dry leaves cracking beneath our feet

 

Hand in hand we've watched

 

The autumn fires burn -

 

Summer's dreams collapsing

 

Chestnuts in need of gathering

 

The whole world lies rotting in the street

 

Soon we will walk with collars high

 

Like ramparts raised for the siege

 

We'll bow to her beauty

 

Cower from her fury

 

Sent as a judgement for a slight

Long past forgotten

 

Winter's love once again unrequited

 

Winter's love once again unrequited

 

She says 'Babe are you sleeping '

 

He says 'No wide awake and thinking

 

Of a dream I just had about the two of us

 

He takes his hand to her cheek now

 

His lips to her brow

 

Their whispers pile softly

 

By the foot of the bed
