Winter's Song - Michael Timmins
    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
