"Fallen Snow" as written by Annie Hart, Erika Spring Forster and Heather Anne D'angelo....
We both know it's going to be another long winter
The kind that freezes shut the doors of early spring
But I still like the wind
When I hear you knocking, with a whisper
I'll open the doors and I'll let you in

Depressing things are empty beds and lonely dinners
And women who are middle aged with naked fingers
I'll buy myself a ring
To symbolize this marriage every time I break the laws to let you in

'Cause nothing's worse than seeing you worse than me
And nothing hurts like seeing you hurt like me
The consequence is less than the happiness you bring to me
There's more to give than what you take from me

'Cause nothing's worse than seeing you worse than me
And nothing hurts like seeing you hurt like me
The consequence is less than the happiness you bring to me
There's more to give than what you take from me

Believe in the things that you know
Believe in the things that you know

Sunshine, throw a starving man a piece of bread

All I said, I didn't mean
The chill is strong and nothing seems
To thaw the icy sentiment
Of love that's gone once winter's spent

    General Commenti agree that it's about loving someone
    you know can't love you as much in return.
    "nothing's worse than seeing you worse than me."
    because though you want them to feel the pain too,
    you can't want it;
    it hurts worse to see that person in the pain
    you know so well.
    "sunshine, throw a starving man a piece of bread."
    because the love they give you is pity or charity,
    and you're starving for it anyway.

    letting this person in every time,
    even though it breaks fate;
    it's still not meant to be-
    you have to force it.
    etc.

    buying yourself a ring,
    because this person isn't going to do that.
    but you want the commitment nonetheless.

    "there's more to give than you take from me."
    this person only takes what they want,
    ignoring all that you could give them,
    how happy you could make them,
    how well you could love them.
    it's a selfish love, on their part.

    beautiful song.

    General Commentthe lyrics are actually:
    "but ill still let you in.
    when i hear you knocking, with a whisper."

    instead of:
    "but i still like the wind."

    so beautiful. i dont know exactly what this means but i think its about a love thats dying. like in winter everything dies. but she still wants to try because she loves him more than anything but she knows in the end once winter is gone itll be over.

    General CommentI think this song is about knowing you love someone so much more than they love you, and its not that they don't love you, its that they can't love you the way you want them to. At the same time, it hurts too much trying to take from them what you need to be happy, or trying to get them to love you the same way, because you know that they'll never be happy if they do.

    General CommentI love this song, really... it is beautiful but the only part I don't like is when the girls sing
    "Depressing things are...... And women who are middle aged with naked fingers "

    I mean, marriage isn't for everyone. I am only 26 but what if I don't want to get married, I would be middle aged and it's not depressing if I choose to be that way. I don't want the general public to think that is a depressing misfortune because our culture believes you have to be married at a certain age.
