Lyrics
Be sure to be quiet in the middle of the night
when the dogs are asleep and the wind is high
Grab your things and wait by the window
I'll meet you by your window
And we'll make no tracks in the snow
We'll follow the lake to where the cold north wind
will cover for us both, so we can hide

And if we survive the cold and the night
in the dead of winter
We'll watch the sunrise on the ice together
If we are to die tonight
In your arms I would lay and it never felt better
And at least we will leave here together

In the still of the night
My bare hands, your pale skin
reflected in the moonlight
We prayed and we prayed to the wind
Your hands in my hands
As soft as the sunlight when the day begins
And as cold as the night blows in
And if we are to die tonight
I pray with my heart that you'll love me forever
And at least we will leave here together
