So far this heat's been making me spin

The holidays were warm and dry

But hopelessness has been waiting for me to give in

The air should be cold; your hand should be warm

Still, I couldn't let go

Each step, it was scorching

The cool wind caressing my cheeks as if to say, "I know"

Half consoling, half teasing. A prophecy.

Then the sky opened

And the snow fell

It's been a long winter

Yeah, without you it's been Hell

The icy drips hung off my lashes

Trailed down my lips

Large flakes swam through my vision in flashes

An embrace I've been wanting forever

And the sky opened

And the snow fell

It's been a long winter

Yeah, without you it's been Hell

And remember that day

When finally winter was true?

The perfect crystals floated down

And turned the whole city blue.


Inspired by the first snowfall of the year.
