lyrics

Poplar trees of amber and gold
Your leaves escape you know
Winter creeps slowly, leaves your branches cold

Frost weighs on you, dust into mold
In winter sun it gleams
Freezing your life it seems that you’re in his hold

And that chill writhes through my brain
And it seeps into my veins
As your hope, it starts to wane
So let it burn, let it burn all through the day

Lights fade as clouds come to play
Nightfall is coming soon
Without the sunlit moon to guide your way

The sky cries for you
A storm is calling
Poplar trees falling wait for morning dew

And that chill writhes through my brain
And it seeps into my veins
As your hope, it starts to wane
So let it burn, let it burn all through the day

Poplar trees begin to bloom
Spring is upon us now
Ice melts and flows into the endless flume
