"Ice Age" as written by and Jorma Kaukonen....
When winter comes
Along these shores
Old Hollywood
We're knocking down
We're sifting through
We are the actual tigers
When winter comes
They leave behind us
Throw your arms around my neck
And hold me tightly
There's a lot that we will get
I'm asking you

Let your diamond bracelet fall
Over the ice age
Over the ice age
Those summer years
We'd follow them in light of day
In light of us
We'll see it through
When they're playing our song
Those summer years
Have long since gone
Throw your arms around my neck
And whisper softly
Of a thing that we will get
I'm asking you

Let your diamond bracelet fall
Over the ice age
Over the ice age
I want to go back
I want to go back
In future time
We'll hold it closer
Imagining
We weren't older
Yet, through it all they'll
Be playing our song
Throw your arms around my neck
And whisper softly
Of a thing that we will get
I'm asking you

Let your diamond bracelet fall
Over the ice age
Over the ice age

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful! My favorite part is -
    "In future time
    We’ll hold it closer
    Imagining
    We weren’t older"

    Although I love this song and it is my favorite off his new album...I have no idea what it means!
    i reckon its just about how time passes by and sometimes you just don’t notice...?!!
    Dunno...that’s just what i think!

    General Commenti think its about a couple going through a rough patch, ice age, and they try to remember to the past to forget the problems of the present. diamonds are everlasting so thats a sign of the past and he wnats her to
    "I’m asking you...
    Let your diamond bracelet fall "
    try and get over their problems to be like they once were.

    General Commentthis song is simply amazing, i think its about a couple

    wanting to stay together in the future and in the

    present. he's telling her to let go of the past and start

    over new and to be his

    General CommentI think "ice age" refers to being frozen in time so to speak. He is reminiscing about when they were both younger and how it can carry on, as they are both still in love with one another. The beginning of the song refers to new beginnings- "knocking down old Hollywood". It almost seems to me as though this couple is old and one or possibly both are dying. The summer years part sounds like an afterlife, in which everything is great again- "When their playing our song". The part where he is saying "I want to go back" suggests that he is still alive while his significant other isn't. It's an incredibly bittersweet song.
