Snow begins
Put your hands on my skin
I’ll keep you warm
All through the storm

But the heat of your breath I feel it
on my neck, you could always melt
a piece of me no matter how cold.
It feels outside.

The world’s lost in white
But what’s not to like?
When the trees disappear
Only your face is clear

Gently full
that’s when I
feel the pull,
feel the pull,
I want to stay,
I want to stay forever

Chorus 1:
But I need to go
I’ll wade through the snow
Til I’m lost on the outside as well
My mind is a flood
World frozen as my blood
And the words that were poison in your ears.

I was cautious but cruel
Gentle but a fool
To think the path would lay straight
Away from you.
So now I concede
That I long to bleed
For the one that I left
In the cold.

If I had to bet I never would have guessed
You’d regret
It pains me to hear
To watch you disappear
though I push away you with my hands.

Were we a fit?
It felt like it on your lips
But if the wages of our love
pay just nickels and dimes
and what can we buy but a handful of bitter words

To throw in each others face, how I
Wish I could trace the curve of you
with my hands but I’ve other plans
our time it has slipped away.

Chorus 2:
I need to go
I’ll wade through the snow
Til the blood fails my hands and my feet.

Though it weighs on your mind
You committed no crime
But to shelter yourself from the storm

So the blame on your lips
Let it die with my kiss goodbye
And kill the shame you wear like a crown

Cause you’re not the queen
And now there’s no need
To call
