I can see the chill
In the air between us
I can feel a winter coming
We're frozen in our stares
And we know there's a world outside
Of these insults and injuries
Maybe we're just too afraid be one

I can feel the winter coming
I can feel the winter coming
I can feel the winter coming
I can feel the winter coming

The autumn sets
A golden exit
The winter is waxing
That cold sun
Will shed no more warmth
Into our living rooms

When we dream of dreams
Will we wait for sleep?
Maybe we'll wake up with golden wings
And fly over our city screaming
Take me
Take me

I woke up this morning
To the silence of falling snow
These graces of beauty have left me so cold
I once had a heart
But hearts are like snowflakes
And snowflakes
They're smothering us
One more touch, and it melts
Melts away
Maybe we'll get wings
Maybe anything
Just anything
To set us free
Maybe we'll wake up with golden exit
Must we always wait for sleep?

    General CommentThis is definitely one of my favorite songs. I can't think of any other songs that use Winter as a metaphor for loneliness and other such depressing things, but I know there's a few of them out there. I think it's interesting.

    General CommentI can't even begin to start with this song.
    its so powerful on a personal and not personal level. I think It's a metaphor for a relationship going sour but one member really doesn't want it to end even though hes perfectly aware... using fall to decribe the last ditch effort to save the relationship. But alas he wakes up and its winter.. now all he has is the dreams and memories.

    General CommentI see this song possibly dealing with death. Waking up with golden wings could be a referrence to angels, and must we always wait for sleep could be death? My opinion is that no one is right on a song except the person who wrote it.
