It’s starting to snow, and it’s bitterly cold
And we’re walking through the woods along the stream
I don’t know why we’re walking so fast
I’m wishing it would last
The light through the trees is like a dream

Doesn’t make sense my dear
The feeling is loud and clear
As the ice cold wind blowing through
Doesn’t make sense my dear
I just want to stay right here
Let me walk a little closer
Closer to you

As we’re walking down the street
With the leaves beneath our feet
The smoke is rising from the chimneys along the way
All the way back to my front door
If I said I wanted more
I wonder what you’d have to say


Now the twilight is gone
And the night is coming on
Cold fingers feel like they’ve turned to stone
It’s about all that I can stand
Not to reach out for your hand
Tonight there’s no reason to be alone
