lyrics

Cold, shivering hands,
They don't seem to get any warmer,
By watching some distant flame burn.

Trapped under ice,
The lake's frozen over, I claw for the
Air through this looking-glass urn.

flashes of light,
They fetter and flee like some wild rabid
Dog chasing shadows of love.

I'll fade away too,
To your silent cries through the ice sheets,
And blue will forever stay blue.

What is the price?
The value of echoing coos and a
Crippling, second-hand love?

A roll of the dice,
A sure bet to win something nearer
and warmer than slippery ice.

And you would be free,
A migrating dove with a compass that
Finally set its course true.

And I will remain,
Like ash in the water, a phantom,
Where blue will forever stay blue.
