Well her face seemed genuine
As she asked how I was doing
But I felt a stiffening in my spine
As her eyes strayed from what i was saying
We used to lock ourselves away
Swallowed up in conversation and bottles of wine
But now there's just awkward silence
Broken up by the stagnant phrase
I haven't seen you in such a long time

Oh her mouth still looks the same
As it speaks my name
But there's a distance in her tone that haunts me
Chills me reminds me
Of Alberta’s landscape in November
Knowing there's months more to come
Where I can run toward the horizon
But not feel the warmth of the sun
That burns my eyes with its beauty
As it reflects from the snow
Can burn me at the same time
As it chills to the bone

Once upon a time I clung to pretending
‘Cause what I wanted most was a Hollywood ending
Now I see in her what it is I’m missing
Silence can speak volumes if I care to listen
A long walk through this winter has triggered my admission
Oh it's been a long time

But her mouth still looks the same
As it speaks my name
Oh there's a distance in her tone that haunts me
Chills me reminds me
Of Alberta’s landscape in November
Knowing there's months more to come
Where I can run toward the horizon
But not feel the warmth of the sun
That burns my eyes with it's beauty
As it reflects from the snow
Can burn me at the same time
As it chills to the bone
