Leaves are getting lighter,
Air is getting sharper by the day,

Days are getting shorter,
So the nights are growing longer the same way,

But the stars, shine brightest in the darkness,
My arms hold you tighter in the cold,
This frozen air reminds me of my heart before I met you,
So I’ll tell you now all I have fortold,

We’ll keep each other warm when the winter comes,
We’ll light the fire and then we’ll close the blinds,
You’ll lay down here to rest your eyes and I’ll lay down beside,
So come in love cos it’s getting dark outside,

In the morning snow will fall, you’ll be dancing through the hall,
In fits of laughter,

I’ll ask you what’s this all about, you’ll say it’s that now I have no doubt,
This is happy ever after,

But fairytales don’t make princesses like you,
They don’t shine as brightly as you do,
Pack a bag we’ve tales to write of two lovers passing through,
And we’ll tell them of the days when the freezing wind blew

Do you hear the choirs calling,
Of the songbirds at the breaking of the morning,
Your departure they are rapidly forestalling,
And the fire in my heart for you is roaring
