Song Lyric Sunday :Songs about the cold

This  week  for  Song Lyric  Sunday  Helen Espinosa   said  : Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song about the cold.

Now  I  have  very  little  time  right  now  so  this  is a  very  quick  post . I  am  following  Helen’s  example  and  posting  two  songs.

The  first  song  is  by  another  fabulous  singer  songwriter Tori Amos

Lyrics  fro  A to Z Lyrics  found  here 

TORI AMOS LYRICS

“Winter”

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 hand in my father’s glove
I run off
Where the drifts get deeper
Sleeping beauty trips me with a frown
I hear a voice
“Your 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 competing for the sun
Years go by and I’m here still waiting Withering where some snowman was
Mirror mirror where’s the crystal palace
But I only can see myself
Skating around the truth who I am
But I know dad 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 grey
And the fires are burning
So many dreams
On the shelf
You say I wanted you to be proud of me
I always wanted that myself

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 have gone ahead
I tell you that I’ll always want you near
You say that things change
My dear

The  second song  is from  the  fantastic  Annie  Lennox .

Lyrics  here  by  A  to Z Lyrics here 

ANNIE LENNOX LYRICS

“Cold”

Come to me
Do and be done with me
(Cold cold cold)
Don’t I exist for you
Don’t I still live for you
(Cold cold cold)
Everything I possess
Given with tenderness
Wrapped in a ribbon of glass
Time it may take us but God only knows
How I’ve paid for those things in the past

Dying is easy it’s living that scares me to death
I could be so content hearing the sound of your breath
Cold is the colour of crystal the snowlight
That falls from the heavenly skies
Catch me and let me dive under
For I want to swim in the pools of your eyes

I want to be with you baby
Slip me inside of your heart
Don’t I belong to you baby
Don’t you know that nothing can tear us apart
Come on now come on now come on now
Telling you that
I loved you right from the start…
But the more I want you the less I get
Ain’t that just the way things are…

Winter has frozen us
Let love take hold of us
(Cold cold cold)
Now we are shivering
Blue ice is glittering
(Cold cold cold)

Cold is the colour of crystal the snowlight
That falls from the heavenly skies
Catch me and let me dive under
For I want to swim in the pools of your eyes

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I  have  to dash  before  I  cause a  row!
Hugs  to  you  all!
