    [sample: "give me summer"] x2

    Broken darkness my cold end
    I look for places I've never seen
    Nothing moves but the quiet on the street
    Now I open my eyes to this
    Isolated walking long hard hours
    Winter cold just brings me winter showers
    It's so brutal with the cold sky
    Wrapped in cold late at night

    [sample: "give me summer"] x2

    Come clean there's no sun yet
    The only lights here are made
    I can't speak, I can't hear, but I know I'm real
    There's no warm here anyway
    The darkest lights before the dawn
    You remember the sun but it sank
    In the water that eats the light
    Wrapped in cold late at night

    [sample: "give me summer"] x2

    I open my eyes, it's cold
    The only souls go by
    Lift the bridge out of the water
    The stone black light
    Living is easy when it's night
    The cold has covered the rain
    I can see forever, to the deep
    Wrapped in cold, late at night
