Song for a Winter’s Night

Gordon Lightfoot

Song for a Winter's Night - Gordon Lightfoot

The lamp is burnin’ low upon my table top, 
The snow is softly falling 
The air is still within the silence of my room, 
I hear your voice softly calling 
If I could only have you near, 
To breathe a sigh or two 
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love, 
Upon this winter night with you 

The smoke is rising in the shadows overhead, 
My glass is almost empty 
I read again between the lines upon each page, 
The words of love you sent me 
If I could know within my heart, 
That you were lonely too 
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love, 
Upon this winter night with you 

The fire is dying now, my lamp is growing dim, 
The shades of night are liftin’ 
The morning light steals across my windowpane, 
Where webs of snow are driftin’
If I could only have you near, 
To breathe a sigh or two 
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love, 
Upon this winter night with you, 
And to be once again with you
