Engelbert Humperdinck Lyrics

Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

My love, the days are colder
So let me take your hand
And lead you through a snowhite land
Oh oh, oh oh

My love, the air is older
So let me hold you tight
And while away this winter night
Oh oh, oh oh
I see the fire light in your eyes
Come kiss me now before it dies

Chorus :
We'll find a winter world of love
'Cos (for) love is warmer in December
My darling stay here in my arms
'Til summer comes along
And in the winter world of love
You'll see, we always will remember
That as snow lay on the ground
We've found our winter world of love

Because the nights are longer
We'll have the time to say
Such tender things before each day
Oh oh, oh oh

And then when love is stronger
Perhaps you'll give your heart
And promise me we'll never part
Oh no, oh no
And at the end of every year
I'll be so glad to have you near
