"Winter Killing" as written by and Stina Nordenstam....
On cold days it is
Easy to behave and
Easy to believe in it
On cold days it is
Easy to see clear and
Easy to believe in it

You say winter's killing you
That you can't stand the season
It has no smell or flavor
I left the city for you
There was no other reason
I did your wife a favour

You're safer with me here
You're safer with me here
You're safer with me here
And you there

I took the fast track
Considered crying
I was stopped in customs
Quite proud of the knack
I have of knowing
When it's over

You're safer with me here
You're safer with me here
You're safer with me here
And you there

With a bit of ice under my clothes
My tongue against the teeth
I think of nothing
Walk around the house on the cold
'Til it hurts to breath
I think of nothing

I knew I had to leave
Cause spring was coming
You'd made a lover out of me
And spring was coming

I'm safer with me here
I'm safer with me here
I'm safer with me here
And you there

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song. It is especially meaningful for us who live in Scandinavia where the winters are not only ice cold, but also quite dark.

    General CommentGood lord this song is amazing. It's so haunting and sad. She doesn't want to be the other woman anymore, so she leaves. She's doing them all a favor in doing so. This song shows a lot of courage, especially if it's biographical. Most people don't have the self control that she exhibits. One of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.
