lyrics

Colder than a winter midnight
Run if you still can
Colder than the icy moonlight
The heart of a travelling man

One day he’ll come back again
No warning but even then
His sweet words a lullaby
Will break your soul
Thunder on a summer sky
A cold wind to make you cry
A darkness to swallow you whole

Colder than a winter midnight
Run if you still can
Colder than the icy moonlight
The heart of a travelling man

Rain on any other day
Would never scare you quite the way
It moves aside avoiding him
When he comes near
Deepest black his smiling eyes
Inviting simple compromise
An easy deal with nothing to fear

Colder than a winter midnight
Run if you still can
Colder than the icy moonlight
The heart of a travelling man

Night has come on silent wings
He whispers as the vampire sings
Of love and dreams and happiness
But nothing is real
Laughter and eternal rest
The blessing of infernal quest
A beating heart you can no longer feel

Colder than a winter midnight
Run if you still can
Colder than the icy moonlight
The heart of a travelling man
The heart of a travelling man
