The Snowman

Chorus
Happiness has died and from lies I hide,
I am the snowman,
With a frozen heart and a mask of white,
I am the snowman.

Verse 1
It's eternal winter, eternal night,
The land is sleeping, the birds stopped singing.
I stand here alone , has it always been so?
And all around is silent and white.

Verse 2
Then you sit by me, share your laughter and woes,
And you shed a tear by my frozen toes;
And on that spot a snowdrop grows,
And I feel an impossible beat of my heart.

Chorus
For happiness has died and from lies I hide,
I am the snowman,
With a frozen heart and a mask of white,
I am the snowman.

Verse 3
Hope shines out from your child-like eyes:
'You must try to remember, remember to try.'
My cracked voice heralds a break in the sky,
Though my words are more bitter than lemon.

Verse 4
And with pain I recall I was ever alive,
But we talk and we talk 'til we see a light.
In the east dawn is breaking and birds are singing,
And with joy they call:
'It is time! It is time!'
