Coming down the stairs
She looks him in the eye
The music just a gentle hum

His tears are rolling down
He begs her not to leave
But she knows that the time has come

Cold winter evening sets the tone
He longs for her, she just longs
To be alone

How the years went by
It’s hard to understand
All they’ve built has come tumbling down

It’s love they’re looking for
But as they dug down deep
It’s sadness and regrets they found


Winter’s coldest days
Frost has settled down
Memories playing on his mind

He keeps the fire warm
Loud music to disguise
The silence that she’s left behind
