Track Name: Winter is Coming
CHORUS:Winter is coming and with it goes the light
But I shall not go willingly into the coming night
The only fruit yet growing hangs from the gallows tree
And I fear that down this path I tread, a sapling grows for me

So roll the bones and read my fate and tell me I'm to die
Or tell me that I've come too late and that I shouldn't try
Tell me all the things that no sane man was ever meant to hear
But don't expect to rule me if the path you choose is fear

So roll the bones and read my fate, or better yet read yours
And if you're wise you'll stay inside and lock and bar your doors
I'll not be ruled by fear or fate, but live the life I choose
Let those who'd try to use me see I've nothing left to lose.

I'll stand against the darkness till they burn me for my crimes
Better flames than gallows fruit in these uncanny times
I'll light the world on fire to save us from the frost
Lest the cold should kill us all, and to Winter we be lost.
Track Name: Winterglass
Surrounded by glass and shattering trees
One touch of my hand caused the mirror to freeze
I slip through the cracks and am lost in the moonlight
The reflections are mine and I’ll do as I please

CHORUS: Don’t stand between the mirrors
One crack, you’ll never leave
Don’t stand between the mirrors
I’ve no more left with which to grieve

Surrounded by glass and there’s snow on the hillside
An apple is packed in the basket with care
There’s nothing left but a myth and a memory
And the mirror and I, into which you now stare

CH:Don’t stand between the mirrors
The price is one pure heart
Don’t stand between the mirrors
If you want this to end then don’t make a new start

BRIDGE: I can’t see where we’re going
I can only see where we have been
I am stopped but the river keeps on flowing to the end
There are things I’d like to change
But I cannot make amends

CH:Don’t stand between the mirrors
You’re more than what they see
Their eyes are frozen mirrors
And you might end up like me
Little sister, break the glass and set me free
Track Name: Winter’s Gift
Quiet the land from valley to hill
And the waters freeze as the night grows chill
And the faeries dance in a glittering ring
With a joy that only Winter can bring

CHORUS:And the wind shall rise
And the snow shall fall
And I will cherish it all
Yes I will cherish it all

Soft is the touch of snow and of dreams
Quiet the joy as the heart softly sings
Silver and blue, with a blanket of white
Is Winter’s gift upon this night

CHORUS

Snow on the trees and stars in the sky
And the full moon shines as the clouds drift by
Leaving us alone in a world gone to sleep
A memory’s all that we may keep

CHORUS

I will cherish it all
