Dawn Otteson:

The sun is shining on the glistening snow
It lifts the season out of the cold
And when I’m with you
I feel the warmth come thru

We talk until it turns yellow gold
Your eyes fill me with all kinds of hope
And when I’m with you
It’s such a lovely view

Snowflakes decorate our hair
We laugh and catch them in the air

And now love
Is dancing free
A waltz with
Roses in my dreams
And now we
Embrace it

Dusk approaches and the sun is gone We don’t care, we will carry on Cuz when I’m with you You’re with me too

Dancing free
You and me
