on winter days my mind seems to slow down
it wanders in slow motion while all others rush around
my certainties begin to seem a curse
i need know your doubts and fears if i’m to understand

that there’d be days when we'd fight
there’d be tears and we’d hide

if my love is always to be spurned
i need to know the borders of this territory i’ve burned
a gentle word, a touch, some common ground
i need your reassurance that i’ve not been here too long

and there’ll be days when we fight
there’d be tears and we’d hide
but there’d be times when we laugh
there’d be nights we’d make love

and every day things go right:
i need to hold them in my mind
don’t let them slip away

every day things go wrong:
i want to learn from my mistakes
then let these feelings fade

on winter days when everything seems lost
i want to be your shelter from the centre of the storm
petals fall, a letter in your hand
i want to hold you near me but i can’t get close enough

and there’ll be days when we fight
there’ll be tears and we’d hide
but there’ll be times when we laugh
there’ll be nights we’d make love

there'll be days when we dance
there'll be love and romance
and we'll hurt each other i'm sure
but we can get by if we can let each other know

that i still want you
