AURORA (Aurora Aksnes) Winter Bird Lyrics

Walking in my sleep

Like the naked trees

Will they wake up again?

Do they sleep? Do they dream?

Feel it as the wind strokes my skin

I am moved by the chill

Hear the winter bird sing

My tears are always frozen

I can see the air I breathe

But my fingers painting pictures

On the glass in front of me

Lay me by the frozen river

Where the boats have passed me by

All I need is to remember

How it was to feel alive

Silent things, violent chase

We are dancing again

In a dream by the lake

Ah…

My tears are always frozen

I can see the air I breathe

But my fingers painting pictures

On the glass in front of me

Lay me by the frozen river

Where the boats have passed me by

All I need is to remember

How it was to feel alive

Rest against my pillow like the aging winter sun

Only wake each morning to remember that you’re gone

So I drift away again

To winter I belong

Ah…

My tears are always frozen

I can see the air I breathe

But my fingers painting pictures

On the glass in front of me

Lay me by the frozen river

Where the boats have passed me by

All I need is to remember

How it was to feel alive

My tears are always frozen…

All I need is to remember

How it was to feel alive

I need to remember

How it was to feel alive
