Winter's Song

Michael Timmins

She says, it's [G] cold where you brought me.
[C] He says, darling, don't worry
[Am] you can stay in my arms
until [D] the springtime comes.
We'll let the [G] snow drift around us
and wait for the [C] robin and the [Em] crocus
to [Am] tell us that our love has [D] again found the [G] sun.

[C] Lone oak stands tall,
[D] bare arms scratch the sky,
[G] dry leaves cracking beneath our feet.
[C] Hand in hand we've watched
the [D] autumn fires burn-
[Em] Summer's dreams collapsing,
[Am] chestnuts in need of gathering,
the [D] whole world lies rotting in the [G] street.

instrumental break on verse

[C#m] Soon we will walk with [Abm] collars high
[C#m] like ramparts raised for the [F#m] siege.
[A] We'll [Bm] bow to her [E] beauty,
[A] cower from her [F#m] fury
[Bm] sent as a [E] judgement for a [A] slight
long past [F#m] forgotten.
Winter's [E] love once again [F#m] unrequited.
Winter's [E] love once again [F#m] unrequited.

She says, [G] babe are you sleeping?
[C] He says, no, wide awake and thinking
[Am] of a dream I just had about the [D] two of us.
He takes his [G] hand to her cheek now,
[C] his lips to her [Em] brow,
their [Am] whispers pile softly
by the [D] foot of the [G] bed.
