lyrics

I don't want to begin
Begin to grow
Into a tree
Covered with snow
I want to stay soft
I want to stay green
I don't wanna be lost
I wanna be seen

And when that blanket of snow
Finds me sleeping
A white and brown colored palindrome
The night time's for love
Or am I dreaming
Dreaming a way back home

Seasons begin
And seasons end
Who once was your true love
Is now just an old friend
They move along
And they move away
Sometimes they'll think about you
And then go on with their day

And when that blanket of snow
Finds you sleeping
A white and brown colored palindrome
Well, thank God for woe
And Him for needing
Needing us to never know

But you cannot stand still
No, you must move around
Your toes won't grow no roots
Connecting you to the ground
And the temperature will drop
As your body will rise
Until your heart simply stops
And snowflakes fall from your eyes

And when that blanket of snow
Finds me sleeping
The street's a snow covered catacomb
The night time's for love
Or am I dreaming
Dreaming of the ones I love
