lyrics

The boys would fill the shovels with bitterness,
The warm water washed over my skin,
It wasn’t fair to me it wasn’t fair to them,
And mama would cry but she wouldn’t tell you,
The wolves at night they would howl,
They just howled at the moon,
And I’d be alone I’d be alone,
While the snow fell down,
Till she’d come say,

Don’t worry my girl,
Winter will be over soon,
Don’t worry my girl,
There’s nothing you could do,
Don’t worry my girl,
Just think of the moon,
Shining on you,
Think of the moon,
Shining on you,

The leaves would go away,
They’d crumble to dust,
I learned about life how it was,
That when you died you were gone,
And nothing could bring you back again,
Oh we’d jokingly say we were young we’d never die,
But in our minds we believed it,
To ourselves we would lie,
And I’d say I wasn’t afraid for you and I,

Oh you say you would give up your life,
To have just one peaceful night,
But I dare you to say that,
To those who have died,
Oh I dare you to say that,
To those who have watched them die,

Don’t go wishing,
Don’t go wishing your life away,

My sister she died in the snow covered path,
I tried to save her with all that I had,
And I cried when she asked me to sing her away,
So I grabbed my strength up off the floor,
I put her head in my hands,
They were cold nothing more,
And my voice it cracked as I sang her,
These words as she faded away,

Don’t worry my girl,
Winter will be over soon,
Don’t worry my girl,
There’s nothing you could do,
Don’t worry my girl,
Just think of the moon,
Shining on you,
Think of the moon,
Shining on you.
