Beneath this snowy mantle cold and clean

The unborn grass lies waiting for its coat to turn to green

The snowbird sings the song he always sings

And speaks to me of flowers that will bloom again in spring.

When I was young, my heart was young then, too

Anything that it would tell me, thatís the thing that I would do

But now I feel such emptiness within

For the thing I want the most in life is the thing that I can't win.

Spread your tiny wings and fly away

And take the snow back with you where it came from on that day

The one I love forever is untrue

And if I could, you know that I would fly away with you.

The breeze along the river seems to say

That he'll only break my heart again should I decide to stay

So little snowbird take me with you when you go

To that land of gentle breezes where the peaceful waters flow.


Yea! If I could you know that I would fly ...... away with you.
