The nights are colder now
maybe I should close the door
and anyway the snow has covered all your footsteps
and I can follow you no more
the fire still burns at night
my memories are warm and clear
but everybody knows it's hard to be alone at this time of year

It was only a winter's tale
just another winter's tale
and why should the world take notice
of one more love that's failed
a love that could never be
though it meant a lot to you and me
on a world wide scale we're just another winter's tale

while I stand alone
a bell is ringing far away
I wonder if you hear, I wonder if you're listening
I wonder where you are today
good luck, I wish you well
for all that wishes may be worth
I hope that love and strength
are with you for the length of your time on Earth

It was only a winter's tale
just another winter's tale
and why should the world take notice
of one more love that's failed
it's a love that could never be
though it meant a lot to you and me
on a world-wide scale we're just another winter's tale

It was only a winter's tale
just another winter's tale
and why should the world take notice
of one more love that's failed
it's a love that could never be
though it meant a lot to you and me
on a world=wide scale we're just another winter's tale

    Chemistry between a married man and i, so brought him home after the office christmas party, now the "friendship" is a little strained! Would still do it again though!

    Ahhh this song is like coming home to me... My parents have always played it since i was little for as long as i can remember (;
    Nobody else knows it but idc i still love this song, even if it's 11 years older than me... And he had it in a show... Well the meaning is fairly obvious i guess...
    This song just calms me down so much
