Lyrics

    Beneath its snowy mantle cold and clean
    The unborn grass lies waiting for its coat to turn to green
    The snowbird sings the song he always sings
    And speaks to me of flowers that will bloom again in spring

    When I was young, my heart was young, then too
    And anything that it would tell me, that's the thing that I would do
    But now I feel such emptiness within
    For the thing that I want most in life's the thing that I can't win

    Spread your tiny wings and fly away
    And take the snow back with you where it came from on that day
    The one I love forever is untrue
    And if I could, you know that I would fly away with you

    The breeze along the river seems to say
    That he'll only break my heart again should I decide to stay
    So, little snowbird, take me with you when you go
    To that land of gentle breezes where the peaceful waters flow

    Spread your tiny wings and fly away
    And take the snow back with you where it came from on that day
    The one I love forever is untrue
    And if I could, you know that I would fly away with you
    Yeah, if I could, you know that I would fly away with you
