"The Hounds Of Winter" as written by and Gordon Sumner....
Mercury falling I rise from my bed
Collect my thoughts together
I have to hold my head
It seems that she’s gone and somehow I am pinned
By the hounds of the winter
Howling in the wind

I walk through the days cold around my ears
I’ve looked for my companion
I have to dry my tears
It seems that she’s gone, leaving me too soon
And I’m as dark as December
I’m cold as the man in the moon

I still see her face as beautiful as day
It’s easy to remember, remember my love that way
All I hear is that lonesome sound
Of the hounds of the winter to carry me down, down

Can’t make up the fire the way that she could
I spend all my days
In the search for dry wood
Board all the windows, and close the front door
I still can’t believe she won’t be here anymore…

I still see her face as beautiful as day
It’s easy to remember, remember my love that way
All I hear is that lonesome sound
Of the hounds of the winter to carry me down, down

A season for joy, a season for sorrow
And where she’s gone I will surely, surely follow
She’s brightened my days and warmed the coldest nights
The hounds of the winter have got me in their sights

I still see her face as beautiful as day
It’s easy to remember, remember my love that way
All I hear is that lonesome sound
Of the hounds of the winter to carry me down

I still see her face as beautiful as day
It’s easy to remember, remember my love that way
All I hear is that lonesome sound
Of the hounds of the winter to carry me down, down
