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

And 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 judgment 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
