TORI AMOS lyrics - Winter

TORI AMOS
"Winter"

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, ah...
Mmm...
