lyrics

in Canada in springtime
you'll still need chains on all four tyres
if you wanna breathe a mountain

in Canada in winter
we were dancing cheek to cheek
in the icy rain upon the vacant city street
and all the imperfections of the little life we'd known
settled on our shoulders in the dirty falling snow

and I can't tell you how to feel 'cause I don't know
I can only tell you what makes sense to me now

so
before you turn him back
you oughta dance
before you turn him off
dance
before you get old lest you grow cold
before you get old turn your collar to the cold
and dance
and dance

before you get old
lest you grow cold
before you get old
turn your collar to the cold
and dance
and dance

in Canada in springtime
you'll still need chains on all four tyres
if you wanna breathe a mountain
