My heart lies sleeping
My heart lies sleeping in a snow-white field
With snowflakes fluttering down
And the sounds of my sighs are muffled and wan
By snowflakes fluttering down.
And the field is covered and covered again
With snowflakes fluttering down,
Till the drifts are as hard as the stares you last gave
To this funny, ragtag clown.
And the snow turns to ice and the ice starts to flow
'Neath snowflakes fluttering down
And slowly, so slowly, my hopes slide away
In a crystalline snow-white gown.
And the years move along with no thaw or respite
And my feelings have all shutdown;
For you were the love I counted upon- now I count
The snowflakes fluttering down…
