SONG FOR A WINTER’S NIGHT

by Gordon Lightfoot, arr. Robin Salkeld

Home > Composers > Robin Salkeld > SONG FOR A WINTER’S NIGHT

featuring the Jubilate Vocal Ensemble
Gordon Lightfoot ‘s lovely song – about relationships, light in a dark place, a warm refuge in the cold – needed an exquisite setting and Robin really hit the mark with this a cappella arrangement.

LYRICS

The lamp is burning low upon my table top
The snow is softly falling
The air is still within the silence of my room
I hear your voice softly calling

If I could only have you near
To breathe a sigh or two
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
Upon this winter night with you

The smoke is rising in the shadows overhead
My glass is almost empty
I read again between the lines upon the page
The words of love you sent me

If I could know within my heart
That you were lonely too
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
Upon this winter night with you

The fire is dying now, my lamp is growing dim
The shades of night are lifting
The morning light steals across my windowpane
Where webs of snow are drifting

If I could only have you near
To breathe a sigh or two
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
And to be once again with with you
To be once again with with you
