lyrics

The snow is falling all around, everything is quiet and still
And the footprints lead the way up to Gibbet Hill
I can feel you're here with me sitting by the hanging tree
How I long for just one kiss from your frozen lips

They bound your feet upon a horse so every one could see
Kicked him and out from under, left you swingin' from the tree
Nobody can save you now, the bell has tolled
The night the reaper came to take your soul

White roses scattered on the ground in the faded photograph
Where the red roses once lay on this lonely path
Frozen in your innocence, moonlight dancing on your face
How I long to be held now in your cold embrace

I look into your timeless eyes, they leave me feeling cold
I look at my reflection, wonder how I got so old
Nobody can turn back time, the bell has tolled
The night the reaper came to take your soul

On the lonely nights like this I come up to Gibbet Hill
And I dream that you and I are together still
Won't you come and dance with me out upon the frozen lake
Pirouette out on the ice, pray for it to break

And as I sink into the depths I dream you're here with me
You come and hold me in your arms, we sink down peacefully
And we can be together now, the bell has tolled
Tonight the reaper's here to take my soul
