come with me, come with me, come with me, sweet child,
I’ll warm you with my icy heart.
don’t you know that when the cold creeps into your bones
you’re filled with the most wonderful warmth?
your lips turn the prettiest shade of blue
and your skin shines white as the moon
there’s beauty in ice crystals filling your eyes
the perfect companion to those sparkling bits of mirror dust.
so come with me, come with me, come with me, sweet child,
we’ll make ourselves a home out of snow.
