lyrics

So leave me drowning in the deep
And turn your head and run.
I hear you cower in your sleep
and my guilt, it weighs a ton.

And all of your light is fading fast from me
All of your light is fading fast from me

Dearest winter how'd you get so cold?
Your white snow is sending shivers down my soul
If you see a woman who looks as lost as I,
Tell her I am looking for her
'cause she left her love behind.

La la la la la, la la la la la
La la la la la, la la la la la
La la la la la

We were two birds caught in a spider's web
dreaming of flying again
I tried to find the strength to turn my head
to take your mind away from all the monsters
but it seems that somehow,

All of your light is fading fast from me
All of your light is fading fast from me

Dearest winter how'd you get so cold?
Your white snow is sending shivers down my soul
If you see a woman who looks as lost as I,
Tell her I am looking for her
'cause she left her love behind.

La la la la la, la la la la la
La la la la la, la la la la la
La la la la la

Dearest winter how'd you get so cold?
Your white snow is sending shivers down my soul
If you see a woman who looks as lost as I,
Tell her I am looking for her
'cause she left her love behind.

But all of your light is fading fast from me
All of your light is fading fast from me.

The Forty Thieves Brisbane, Australia

The Forty Thieves started in Jacob Clarke's living room at 2am one night after a party. Since then, the group started writing songs in university practice rooms and eventually put together recordings in Matt's little West End flat. The result was a tuneful mess of world-inspired folk, a mix of unconventional instruments (like the guitarrón, autoharp, and mandolin). They have big plans. ... more
