Back when the angels of heaven would sing
days when I still made you feel something and before what might be
became what's already been
Blizzards and bygones the frost and no thaw
airways constricting
and vessels withdraw
And you look around but find yourself all alone
And you hunker down but the cold's already in your bones
There's a flicker of desire
and a memory of youth
a faintly glowing fire for some truth
I lit a fire
it started then stopped
Elements will conspire
and mercury drop
Can you stand the weather
if winter lasts forever?
