Standing on the boulevard
You wish to know my name
I'm the Ice Maiden
I think perhaps you like being unhappy
I'm the Ice Maiden
The limit of your dreams
Arctic winds blow and still you believe
Loves makes you one of the chosen
Die in the snow
I'll never grieve
So what if tomorrow you're frozen
Death is a small price for heaven

Welcome to the glow of high octane affairs
Esperanto style and blond disheveled hair
Subterranean streams, duckling you're a swan
Infinite's of dreams imploding into one
All those nights I dreamt of you
I wonder where they've gone
You're the Ice Maiden
Standing on the boulevard
I've always known your name
You're the Ice Maiden
Let you and I grow frosty together
You're the Ice Maiden
Today you meet your match
Girl when I burn
Hell nothing's the same
I'll singe your pretty blond lashes

We're talking fire
We're talking flame
We're talking ice into ashes
But death is a small price for heaven
All those nights I dreamt of you
I wonder where they've gone
Girl when I burn
Hell nothing's the same
I'll singe your pretty blond lashes
We're talking fire
We're talking flame
We're talking ice into ashes
But death is a small price for heaven
