lyrics

oh how the trees gather snow
how they bend and break when the cold winds blow
in this town perched beside the bay
where chimneys billow smoke
like some sad crude offering to the moon

oh how my lungs fill with cold
how it stings my eyes and burns my throat
sending my love across the lake
but how can i keep on
shouting louder still against the crashing waves

oh how the sun rises slow
and aura is in flames colored red and gold
and the bishop looks on across the bay
arms outstretched
and feet firmly planted in their place

oh how i feel far from home
how i bend and break when the cold winds blow
i drive on around the lake
calling to my love
all i want to do is make it home to you
