Hey now it’s a brand new day I think it might’ve snowed a bit last night
But the morning sun’s gonna melt the snow away for one more day
Summers birds have taken flight, Autumns stars are crisp and bright
Soon the northern lights are gonna shine on me

Here in the mountains winter never seems to far away
It reminds me of all I’ve tried to know
Even while the flowers bloom I feel a chill run through
And I begin to see there’s nothing you can hold for long
Here in the mountains a quiet breeze just takes my breath away
And it reminds me of all thats come before
Play the tune a thousand times, echoes ringing in my mind and
Every time I turn it’s a brand new song

Let’s go now, don’t be slow, you know I got a lot to do today
I’ve got to get some wood in the nights are getting cold
Rhythm makes the time go as I watch this pile grow
I see the sun is riding low across the western sky
Hey now, well can’t you see just what your love has done for me
I think it’s gonna hold the snow away for one more day
Then we’ll build a fire bright, one that gets us through the night
We’ll draw the curtains tight until the morning comes
