"A Winter's Tale" by David Essex

The nights are colder now,

Maybe I should close the door

And anyway the snow

Has covered all your footsteps

And I can follow you no more.

The fire still burns at night

My memories are warm and clear

But everybody knows it's hard to be alone

At this time of year.

It was only a Winter's tale, 

Just another Winter's tale

Why should the world take notice

Of one more love that's failed.

It's a love that could never be

Though it meant a lot to you and me.

On a worldwide scale,

'Twas just another winter's tale.

Whilst I stand alone

A bell is ringing far away.

I wonder if you hear,

I wonder if you're listening

I wonder where you are today.

Good luck I wish you well

For all that wishes may be worth

I hope that love and strength

Are with you for the length

Of your time on Earth.

It was only a Winter's tale, 

Just another Winter's tale

And why should the world take notice

Of one more love that's failed.

It's a love that could never be

Though it meant a lot to you and me.

On a worldwide scale,

'Twas just another Winter's tale. 

It was only a Winter's tale, 

Just another Winter's tale

And why should the world take notice

Of one more love that's failed.

It's a love that could never be

(Slowing)

Though it meant a lot to you and me.

On a worldwide scale,

'Twas just another winter's...

(faster)

...Worldwide scale,

'Twas just another winter's tale.
