Longing for snow I'm panting and gasping
Under a sun that's been trying to kill me for days
In every dark corner I'm chased and harassed
By the heat that won't take no for an answer

So I'm longing for snow, for the sharp bite of cold
For a frantic desire to put on a long coat
I'm praying for ice to crunch under my feet
For a wind that blows through me and chills every bone

Blinded by sweat in my face's every creekbed
Nose burnt red by summer, not whipped red by cold
I'm longing for snow that won't answer my calling
Dreaming of winters a world's road from home
