Michael Peter Smith
  (immediately follows "Up in the Clouds")
[ KAI: While it's a beautiful story for a winter's night
I confess I don't believe a single solitary word
Still if horses could have wings
Wouldn't you love to fly in a sleigh above the storm
With a telescope and things
And wave to the winter moon
See the stars and all
Up close and personal
And fly to Spitzbergen
And a castle by the sea?

Is that someone tapping at the windowpane?
Could be just the creaking of the weathervane
How cold and strange is the song the North Wind sings
And how like some wild bird with angel wings
Is this beautiful lady at my window ]
SNOW QUEEN: I'm cold
I've been cold for oh so long
Ever since the first snowstorm whistled round the flue
I need someone like you to keep me warm
KAI: See how she beckons
How she beckons to me
Shivering for eternity
KAI: Like the waving limbs of a barren tree
SNOW QUEEN: Freezing by an ice cream sea
KAI: Can you believe how beautiful she is?
SNOW QUEEN: My lips eternal blue
KAI: So beautiful
SNOW QUEEN: I need someone like you to stay with me
KAI: When she sings I hear the wind blow
Rapping at the door and rattling the window
SNOW QUEEN: The North Wind laughed when he told me where to find you
KAI: Am I dreaming
SNOW QUEEN: He's been round your house many times before
KAI: While awake?
SNOW QUEEN: Hasn't he nearly blown the chimney off your roof?
KAI: With eyes open wide?
SNOW QUEEN: Doesn't he wail and moan around the cracks in your red front door?
He loves the cracks in your red front door
KAI: When I see through your eyes
We are lovers forever
In a story untold
SNOW QUEEN: And you'll never grow old
KAI: Such a long time 'til never
Now just like some wild bird
You fly away
You fly away
You fly away
SNOW QUEEN: I'm cold
