Once I was alone
So lonely and then
You came, out of nowhere
Like the sun up from the hills

Cold, cold was the wind

Out there, on that ski trail

A weekend in Canada, a change of scene
Was the most I bargained for
And then I discovered you and in your eyes

Down, down came the sun
Fast, fast, fast, beat my heart
I knew when the sun set
From that day, we'd never ever part
