       F6/9        C9/E            G/B       C2
Your eyes burn bright against the frost-bit sky

You never seemed more lovely than you do tonight

Verse 2:

 G5   G/B            C2
      Pale on the horizon
G5           G/B           C2
Like leaves frozen in the snow
      F6/9       C9/E  G/B         C2
Our two shadows merge  in - separably
     F6/9         C9/E        G/B           C2
Will time stand still if it's pierced with cold

C                G
    The more I live

   There's a warmth in my heart
G5       G/B                   C2
     It haunts me when you're gone
F6/9            C9/E      G/B      C2
Mend me to your side and never let go
      F6/9       C9/E           G/B        C2
Say 'time knows nothing, we'll never grow cold

Twilight descends on our silhouette
     C          Gsus/B      Am7            F9
How soon spring comes, how soon spring forgets
   Em                          G
I wanna hold time, Say it'll never begin

I love
