Love and maple syrup goes together
Like the sticky winds of winter
When they meet
When lonely lovers come to rest
Beneath the trees they do their best
But still they can't be free

Looking for the world to be
Anything but what they see
Longing to be understood
By the heart that shapes the wood

If you go into the forest
Gaze up through the leaves
And see the sky is almost wild
You can learn to understand
What makes the forest greet the man
Like a mother's only child

In the north when when winter's claw
Relaxes now to keep the law
Of nature in control
People come and stand in line
To rob the forest of her wine
But they don't feel the cold

Looking for the world to be
Anything but what they see
Longing to be understood
By the heart that shapes the wood

Love and maple syrup shine like
Like embers warm, like thoughts divine
They tell us it is spring
Love and maple syrup stir
The thoughts of people into words
Of songs that they can sing

Love and maple syrup goes together
Like the sticky winds of winter
When they meet
When lonely lovers come to rest
Beneath the trees they do their best
But still they can't be free

Looking for the world to be
Anything but what they see
Longing to be understood
By the heart that shapes the wood

Looking for the world to be
Anything but what they see
Longing to be understood
By the heart that shapes the wood
