Mercury falling 
I rise from my bed  
Collect my thoughts together 
I have to hold my head 
It seems that she's gone 
And somehow I am pinned by 
The hounds of winter 
Howling in the wind 

I walk through the day 
My coat around my ears 
I look for my companion 
I have to dry my tears 
It seems that she's gone 
Leaving me too soon 
I'm as dark as December 
I'm as cold as the man in the moon 

I still see her face 
As beautiful as day 
It's easy to remember 
Remember my love that way 
All I hear is that lonesome sound 
The hounds of winter 
They follow me down 

I can't make up the fire 
The way that she could 
I spend all my days 
In the search for dry wood 
Board all the windows and close the front door 
I can't believe she won't be here anymore 

I still see her face 
As beautiful as day 
It's easy to remember 
Remember my love that way 
All I hear is that lonesome sound 
The hounds of winter 
They follow me down 

A season for joy 
A season for sorrow 
Where she's gone 
I will surely, surely follow 
She brightened my day 
She warmed the coldest night 
The hounds of winter 
They got me in their sights 

I still see her face 
As beautiful as day 
It's easy to remember 
Remember my love that way 
All I hear is that lonesome sound 
The hounds of winter 
They harry me down
