I promised you everything to no avail
I was expecting snow, and you gave me hail
My winter wonderland
Is held in the warmth of your callous hand
The presence -- no, the gift of you
Was taken from me half unwrapped
A Christmas like this only came once a lifetime
The snow turned to ice
Like stalactites ready and waiting to fall
You shattered all my hopes like it was your business
You came masterfully disguised in a masquerade of lies
When all the while you were planning my demise

The north has no place for a Florida boy who loves snow
There's a twinkle in the sky that says, "there's no place like home"

They say no two snowflakes can ever look the same
And that they rarely ever land in the same place
But you hit me again with the same cold wind
You were never one to follow the rules

(Well, the winds are coming in from the west this time
And it's a long, cold draft)

This love is spineless, yeah it sends shivers down my spine
(Shivers down my spine)
Every move we make is another crack in the ice
And soon we we will be drowning
(We're cracking in the ice)
Put on a sweater, it has sleeves for your heart to reside on
(Sleeves for your heart to reside)
So you won't be cold all the time

Go ahead and burn more bridges
Yeah, cause I could use a flame
I still shiver from the thought of you
You played me like a game
Go ahead and sell me more
Like you've still got a chance
Cause frankly, I've just had enough
Of this dollar bill romance

They say no two snowflakes can ever look the same
And that they rarely ever land in the same place
But you hit me again with the same cold wind
You were never one to follow the rules

Stars covered the skies as I looked into your eyes
And I searched for a depth which was hidden deep inside
Of a translucent shell; a shallow, cold sheet of ice
Yet always thick and warm enough to shield you from demise
I was searching for the secrets of emotional retreat
Cause it's never just the ice, it's the water beneath
But all I could find was a fickle, shallow mind
And the crushing realization that you were no longer mine

I didn't make it very far
I didn't make much of anything
The only thing I made was a mistake
You're my favorite mistake

I hope the next breath you take is underwater
And the next step that you make is on thin ice
