Song for a Winter's Night
by Sarah McLachlan



The lamp is burning low upon my tabletop
Snow is softly falling
The air, still, in the silence of my room
I hear your voice softly calling

If I could only have you near
To breath a sigh or two
I would be happy to just hold the hands I love
On this winter's night with you

The smoke is rising in the shadows overhead
My glass is almost empty
I read again between the lines upon each page
The words of love you send me

If I could know within my heart
That you were lonely too
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
On this winter's night with you

The fire is dying, the lamp is growing dim
The shades of night are lifting
The morning light steals across my window pane
Where webs of snow are drifting

If I could only have you near
To breath a sigh or two
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
On this winter's night with you
And to be once again with you
