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
