Track Name: Winter Island
Winter Island

Upon your Winter Island
We wore boots
Upon the sand
Thanking heaven for our hunter’s hats
That tied beneath the chin

Upon your Winter Island
I held you so close
I felt the bird
you keep within your chest
Spread it’s wing & beat against
me

Upon your Winter Island
We ran upon the sand
We rose & fell like dark birds
& I kissed
your mittened hand

Upon your Winter Island
We slept in feathered beds
& the howling of the air at night
Was a ghost upon the wind
Track Name: Snow Pony
Snow Pony

We made a pony out of snow
& gave him mirrored eyes
we made a pony out of snow
for the lady of the ice

Come to take him away with her
in the night

We made a pony out of snow
& gave him mirrored eyes
did she see her own white face
when she brought him into life

One kiss from her cold lips
one kiss from her blue lips

We made a pony out of snow
& gave him mirrored eyes
we made a pony out of snow
for the lady of the ice

In darkness & in silence
did she come
& in the morning they were gone
