  • Snow can wait I forgot my mittens
    Wipe my nose get my new boots on
    I get a little warm in my heart when I think of winter
    I put my hands in my father's glove
    I run off where the drifts get deeper

    Sleeping Beauty it drips me with a frown
    I hear a voice you must learn to stand up
    For yourself cause I can't always be around

    He says when you gonna make up your mind
    When you gonna love you as much as I do
    When you gonna make up your mind
    'Cause things are gonna change so fast
    All the white horses are still in bed
    I tell you that I'll always want you near
    You say that things change my dear

    Boys get discovered as winter melts
    Flowers come pleading for the sun
    Years go by and I'm used to waiting
    With a ring with some snowman's
    Mirror mirror where's the crystal palace
    But I can only see myself

    Skating around the truth who I am
    But I know the Ice is getting thin

    When you gonna make up your mind
    When you gonna love you as much as I do
    When you gonna make up your mind
    'Cause things are gonna change so fast
    All the white horses are still in bed
    I tell you that I'll always want you near
    You say that things change my dear

    Hair is gray and the fire is burring
    So many dreams on the shelf
    You say I wanted you to be proud of me
    I always wanted that myself

    When you gonna make up your mind
    When you gonna love you as much as I do
    When you gonna make up your mind
    'Cause things are gonna change so fast
    All the white horses have gone ahead
    I tell you that I'll always want you near
    You say that things change my dear

    Never change
