These nights are long and cold, take me by the hand; let's go walking through the snow.

The makeup's running down your face, and it's safe to say that you've lost your glare. All the things i should not say, when the lights go dim and i lead you on.

These nights are long and cold, take me by the hand; let's go walking through the snow.

you're eyes they won't save me
i know you're far away
let's just wish upon a star

a star

it's hard to say we're moving on
making out on my roof
all night long

i miss the way you always smile
and your eyes so deep
full of memories

these nights are long and cold
take me by the hand
let's go walking through the snow

you're eyes they won't save me
i know you're far away
let's just wish upon a star

why do i fall for everything

just ask as i go
and your suffering
and the seasons change
and you lost a friend
and i hope you know
that the story goes
there i go on and
there i go on and on

    General Commentthis is a great song,
    &a pretty spiffy band.
    all the things i should not say = all the words I should not say
    [also]
    and your suffering = and you're suffering
    yeh. just thought i'd help you out, off the top of my head. not many people who listen to this band, apparantly.

    General CommentRLL=Love.

    I'm not too good at analyzing songs,
    but I think this is about how it is hard to move on and when you miss someone [hence;
    i miss the way you always smile
    and your eyes so deep
    full of memories"]

    General CommentEven though this band has broken up.. It will always still be one of my top faves!!!

    This song is about missing some one and.. basicly what Kellieisrad said.

    These nights are long and cold, take me by the hand; let's go walking through the snow.
    (She is has been thrown back and forth she is exhausted, she says let’s just be what we can be. These nights are long and lonely, let’s just be together when we can.)
    The makeup's running down your face, and it's safe to say that you've lost your glare. All the things I should not say, when the lights go dim and I lead you on.
    (He sees she is beyond herself, the moment when you have cried so much you cannot force another tear. She has lost all hope all questions all her torment. She is too tired to fight for anything. He is now feeling sorry for all the nights he spent telling her he loved her and not giving her anything of sustenance.)
    These nights are long and cold, take me by the hand; let's go walking through the snow.

    you're eyes they won't save me
    I know you're far away
    let's just wish upon a star

    a star
    (She feels no comfort in his eyes anymore, she feels nothing. They are both in completely different paths, all they have is hope that the roads will once again merge together again.)

    it's hard to say we're moving on
    making out on my roof
    all night long
    (When they are away from each other they say they are moving on- how can they move on when there is so much past?)
    I miss the way you always smile
    and your eyes so deep
    full of memories
    (He misses the good times they had together)

    these nights are long and cold
    take me by the hand
    let's go walking through the snow
    (He says take my hand you’re right, I am lonely.)

    you're eyes they won't save me
    I know you're far away
    let's just wish upon a star

    why do I fall for everything
    (She cries to herself why do I fall for all his lines of “I really do love you, I’m just not ready”
    just ask as I go
    and your suffering
    and the seasons change
    and you lost a friend
    and I hope you know
    that the story goes
    there I go on and
    there I go on and on

    (So much time has come and gone, and she is still suffering. She has lost her truest friend- she has lost herself. So is giving up trying to make happiness with him. She is just letting time lead her on and on. Who knows what is in store for them..only time. —all she can do is just take one day at a time.)

    -This is a true story. All I can do is wait. I wholeheartedly think this band ended because this CD, this story.. was all they were meant to make. There is no way they could write the ending to this story in another CD, only time can.
