asleep in the snow

lyrics

I fell asleep in the snow
I thought when I awoke, you'd still love me
but when you sleep in the snow
you never will awake
you never will awake

And all of the racket when the soldiers find my body
and all of the birds overhead flying circles
tell them peasant kids, barefoot and woolly-headed
you should never falls asleep in the snow
or those who love you will never know

I fell asleep in the snow
I thought when I awoke you'd still love me
but when you sleep in the snow
you never will awake
you never will awake

I don't think that you looked for me
they found my body come the spring
I think something is wrong with me
and the snow begins again quietly
people who fall in love so easily
do stupid things like sleep in the snow

I fell asleep in the snow
I thought when I awoke you'd still love me
but when you sleep in the snow
you never will awake
you never will awake

I fell asleep in the snow
I thought when I awoke you'd still love me
it's kinder to die thinking someone's thinking of you
but it's no different from dying alone

I fell asleep in the snow
I thought when I awoke you'd still love me
but when you sleep in the snow
you never will awake
you never will awake
