lyrics

Standing on the back of autumn weather
Purple heather creeps up on the sky
Well she will shout a shepherd’s call
Sitting on the fence ‘till all her grief disappears

Closing on the heels of winter’s worry
Cold heads hurry while they wait for food
Sometimes she feels just like a storm, clothes in tatters dressed in scorn
Oh Hannah, how I feel for you

Well I could see why, that she’d want to
Following the Tees to its source
Up Baldersdale, past Cotherstone, to the farm
Hannah’s in the field all alone with Adder’s tongue
Hoping that the sun threads a course through the clouds in the sky above the dale
Yearning for the perfect weather, waiting for the snow to gather

Battle through the drifts that swallow walls like they don’t matter
Picking off the weak
The cold will freeze the river dry
The firewood’s damp the sky’s alive
Don’t think, don’t realise

Closing on the heels of winter’s worry
Cold heads hurry while they wait for food
Sometimes she feels just like a storm, clothes in tatters dressed in scorn
Oh Hannah, how I feel for you

In the hotel room, it’s not dark enough
Well I can still see the crack in the wall that wants to swallow her whole
She comes around to watch them sleep, she stands and watches silently
But I, know she’s there

Closing on the heels of winter’s worry
Cold heads hurry while they wait for food
Sometimes she feels just like a storm, clothes in tatters dressed in scorn
Oh Hannah, how I feel for you
Waiting for the snow to gather round us
