when winter comes

from by Lux Interna

lyrics

When winter comes
And our smiles slow
And the thin limbed trees
Raped of autumn’s glow
Echo empty prayers
Through the still grey air

When winter comes
We shall not walk away
Midwinter’s fires will
Burn bright our days

When winter comes
We shall not walk away
Midwinter’s fires will
Burn bright our day

When winter comes
Will we hold sway
As the skeletal leaves
Become the prey
Each a downward spiral
Like a fallen smile

When winter comes
We shall not walk away
Midwinter’s fires will
Keep the darkness at bay
When winter comes we
Shall not walk away
Midwinter’s fires
Will burn bright our day

The shadows fall as they start to dance
To the sky’s dead rhythm they follow entranced
Our eyes grow dim as the setting sun
Upon this ground where our hearts will be
Lost or won

When winter comes we shall not walk away
Midwinter’s fires will keep the darkness at bay
When winter comes we shall not walk away
Midwinter’s fires will burn bright our days
