Don't you lie, don't lie to me
That you're not afraid, my love.
I know you well enough to know
You can't be alone.

If you were to roll, to roll down your window
You'd find the wind, the ice, the trees
That sway like skeletons outside.

But when the cold, the dark, and the silence come
It's like a sudden rush of water through your heart and lungs.

Please don't fight, don't fight with me
And fold your arms like it's the end.
Can you smell the sweetness of the soil and snow in the wind?

So we're lost, we're lost out here on the plains, my love.
It's only wind and ice and trees that wave from above.

But when the cold, the dark, and the silence come
It's like a sudden rush of water through your heart and lungs.

When the cold, the dark, and the silence come
It's like a sudden rush of water through your heart and lungs.

Don't lie
Don't cry
It's over
It's only the leaves, the trees
I'll never leave you alone
In this car
In the dark, with the air getting so much colder.
It's so clear outside here, in the moon and winter air.

But when the cold, the dark, and the silence come
It's like a sudden rush of water through your heart and lungs.

When the cold, the dark, and the silence come
It's like a sudden rush of water
It's like a sudden rush of water
It's like a sudden rush of water through your heart and lungs.

The cold, the dark and the silence.
The cold, the dark and the silence.
The cold, the dark and the silence.
The cold, the dark and the silence.
The cold, the dark and the silence.
The cold, the dark and the silence...
