White birches, naked, stand along the road
leaves stripped away from them long ago
And I know, I know
even a naked tree survives the cold
we're in for a hard winter's what I'm told

Lace of frost on my window pane has got me down
leaves tumble by over frozen ground
And I can't keep sane
when the nights come down hard as rain
darkness is in such a rush these days

Keep me in your firelight, my love
Hold me close to you

In the long shadows, where my happy hides
white rain tumbles from a silver sky
And I tell you, friend
even the longest winter's gotta end
keep a fire burning 'til it's spring again
