Artist's Notes

A song about someone who is at the end of their life and they are thinking back fondly on a past love.

Lyrics

Dance in the snow

(Verse 1)

At the end of my bed, a candle burns
Rivulets of wax, from the twists and the turns,
I watch as it drips
All its heartbeats down,
and my wheezing chest
Is the only sound.

(Chorus)
You know this life is precious
So bathe in its warm glow,
Live it like it's your only
Chance to dance in the snow.

(Verse 2)
High up on the ceiling, like strangers
I see faces, of demons and angels,
Patterns showing no
Discernible truth,
That blur and obscure
my musings of you.

(Bridge)
We danced that night by the Danube
With tears of happiness in our eyes,
You put your head against my chest
And swore you'd be mine 'til you died.

(Verse 3)
As the curtains ripple, In the faint breeze
night closes in, stealthily by degrees,
It tightens its grip
Cold hands on my neck,
It will not let go
No-one's beat it yet.

(Chorus)
You know this life is precious
So bathe in its warm glow,
Live it like it's your only
Chance to dance in the snow.

(whispered)
And a snowflake twirled in from the dark night
Waltzing with an easy grace,
As I closed my eyes with just one thought
That smile upon your face...
