Settling in for a lonely one
Quiet as snow now the lights are gone
The houses fall and they rise anew
But the faces change
They all move on like you
The air feels colder tonight
They all pass over in the fading light

South for the winter once again
So as we end so life begins

Covering up all the careless things
The curtains drawn on the suffering
The postcards come from a brighter day
I'll see you soon, but soon seems far away
The wind calls the moth from the nest
The wings grow tired but there's no rest

South for the winter once again
So as we end so life begins
South for the winter back to blue
Over and over but not over you

Speak slowly so I can see
The sun from your memory
Just take your sweet time let it last beyond the dream
I know you can't stay for long
Soon the courage to be strong
You'll fly away and I'll lay in the place of sleep
This place of sleep
This place of sleep

South for the winter once again
So as we end so I begin
South for the winter flying free
Gone to the dawn leave the dark for me

I'm just settling in for a lonely one
Quiet as snow all the lights are gone
You're gone
You're gone
