Oh life,
Where have you taken me?
Twas once I was your fair-haired child
Now it seems I'm out of style
Oh life be gentle yet
There are things I can't forget
Like autumn love without regret
When autumn turned to winter
Mottled leaves in circles twirl
Inside the spirits of the girl
Whose arms were once around you
Love where have you gone
Just when I thought I'd found you
Snowflakes dance like feathers round my head
I cannot dream my dreams
In an empty bed
Life is for lovers
That's what you said
Then placed your soul inside me
But now that winter's taken you from sleep
It seems there's nothing left to keep
You here beside me
