Song For a Winter's Night

The lamp is burning low upon my tabletop
The snow is softly falling
The air is still in the silence of my room
I hear your voice softly calling

If I could only have you near
To breathe a sigh or two
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
On this winter's night with you

The smoke is rising in the shadows overhead
My glass is almost empty
I read again between the lines upon each page
The words of love you send me

If I could know within my heart
You were lonely too
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
On this winter's night with you

The fire dying
The lamp is growing dim
The shades of night are lifting
The morning light steals across my window pane
Where webs of snow are drifting

CHORUS: If I could only have you near to breathe a sigh or two
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
On this winter's night with you
And to be once again with you






songwriter: Gordon Lightfoot

performed by: Sarah McLachlan

date released: 1967 by Gordon Lightfoot, 2006 by Sarah McLachlan

Sarah McLachlan was born and adopted in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1968. As a young child, she took lessons in classical piano and guitar as well as voice lessons. She completed high school and one year at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design before she decided to move to Vancouver.

It was on the West Coast in 1988 that McLachlan began her recording career with the album containing the hit single 'Vox'.

McLachlan's career would culminate in twenty-one Juno Award nominations and eight awards. She has also won three prestigious Grammy Awards. In 1999, she was appointed as Officer of the Order of Canada by then Governor-General, Adrienne Clarkson. In 2001, she was inducted into the Order of British Columbia.

In more recent years, McLachlan opened her philanthropic heart by performing for free benefit concerts for tsunami victims relief. In addition, she founded the Sarah McLachlan Musical Outreach Choir & Percussion Ensemble for inner city at-risk youth. She also is an avid supporter of the ASPCA and animal welfare where she filmed a two-minute advertisement with her song, 'Angel'. It raised 30 million dollars for the ASPCA.
