Tori Amos – Winter

All Music

Snow can wait. I forgot my mittens
Wipe my nose
Get my new boots on

I get a little warm in my heart
When I think of winter
I put my hand in my father’s glove

I run off
Where the drifts get deeper
Sleeping beauty trips me with a frown

I hear a voice,
“You must learn to stand up for yourself
‘Cause I can’t always be around.”

He says
When you gonna make up your mind
When you gonna love you as much as I do
When you gonna make up your mind

‘Cause things are gonna change so fast
All the white horses are still in bed
I tell you that I’ll always want you near
You say that things change, my dear

Boys get discovered
As winter melts
Flowers competing for the sun

Years go by
And I’m here still waiting
Withering where some snowman was

Mirror mirror
Where’s the crystal palace
But I only can see myself

Skating around the truth
Who I am
But I know, dad, the ice is getting thin

When you gonna make up your mind
When you gonna love you as much as I do
When you gonna make up your mind

‘Cause things are gonna change so fast
All the white horses are still in bed
I tell you that I’ll always want you near
You say that things change my dear

Hair is grey
And the fires are burning
So many dreams on the shelf

You say I wanted you
To be proud of me
I always wanted that myself

When you gonna make up your mind
When you gonna love you as much as I do
When you gonna make up your mind

‘Cause things are gonna change so fast
All the white horses have gone ahead
I tell you that I’ll always want you near
You say that things change, my dear

Never change
All the white horses
