Wintersong

Album: Wintersong (2006)
  • The lake is frozen over
    The trees are white with snow
    And all around reminders of you
    Are everywhere I go

    It's late and morning's in no hurry
    But sleep won't set me free
    I lie awake and try to recall
    How your body felt beside me
    When silence gets too hard to handle
    And the night too long

    This is how I see you
    In the snow on Christmas morning
    Love and happiness surround you
    As you throw your arms up to the sky
    I keep this moment by and by
    Oh I miss you now, my love
    Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
    Merry Christmas, my love

    Sense the joy fills the air
    And I daydream and I stare
    Up at the tree and I see
    Your star up there

    This is how I see you
    In the snow on Christmas morning
    Love and happiness surround you
    As you throw your arms up to the sky
    I keep this moment by and by Writer/s: Sarah McLachlan, Pierre Marchand
