lyrics

Snow is falling softly on my face
Like all my words tonight,
They’re cold, then slowly melt away

And your hands are very cold, and I
I know that I love you
And I know that you are mine
Yes I know that you are mine

And everything is moving faster than you and I
‘Cause time goes much slower when you cry

Walking on a frozen street of glass
We think about the answers
To the questions we don’t ask

Someone slips
We pull each other down
Now our backs are soaking up the cold
From the dead and frozen ground
From the dead and frozen ground
So still on the dead and frozen ground

And everything is moving faster than you and I
‘Cause time goes much slower when you cry

Oh oh oh

And everything is moving faster than you and I
‘Cause time goes much slower
Time goes much slower
Yes, time goes much slower when you cry
