lyrics

This winter’s got me in a choke hold
Sucks the warm air right from my lungs
It’s been far too long
Since we last felt the sun

If I gave you my word
When did my heart follow
I don’t need to steal your love
Just let me borrow it one more time

When will we emerge from this never-ending night?

Maybe the white north ain’t so great after all

But if a long distance call
Can make an empire fall
And put an end to this all
Wait for it to ring

Like the only flower
in a rocky garden says
I am a stranger
In the most familiar place

You can save me now
But I've seen what I’ve seen
You can take me away
But I've been where I’ve been

When will we emerge from this never-ending night?

Maybe the white north ain’t so great after all
But if a long distance call
Can make an empire fall
And put an end to this all
Wait for it to ring
