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 
All the white horses
