FROZEN LAKES (Långdans från Sollerön)


Lyrics by MaJiKer



So thin this skin, we are frozen
Waiting for the thaw to come
We'll cling ‘til spring is awoken
Waiting for the thaw

Can't blink, can't drink, we are frozen
Waiting for the thaw to come
We think in sync, slow motion
Waiting for the thaw

In cold we hold our breath
Caught inside winter's freeze-frame
Buried in the chill
In deep and sleepless death
Paralysed, we are prisoners
Sentenced to be still

Pulled down and bound, we are frozen
Longing for the sun to rise
Deaf, dumb and numb, never broken
Longing for the sun

Trapped under, stunned, we are frozen
Longing for the sun to rise
Each sound is drowned, never spoken,
Longing for the sun

In cold we hold our breath
Caught inside winter's freeze-frame
Buried in the chill
In deep and sleepless death
Paralysed, we are prisoners
Sentenced to be still
