Men Of Snow

Written by
Ingrid Michaelson

once i made a man all out of snow
he had the darkest eyes and a button nose
i told him all my sadness and my fear
and he just listened with a snowy ear

but when i came around the next day
my friend had gone and melted all away
i saw his eyes lying on the ground
and i made a sound that was something like crying

oh one day you will go away from this
oh one day you will know we're men of snow
we melt
one day

winters come, my love the winters go
and time stacks up in piles like winter snow
and everything you love and hold so dear
it won't really matter when we disappear

oh one day you will go away from this
oh one day you will know we're men of snow
we melt
one day
