Jasper, Alabama U.S.A.
Through the winter's midnight air,
I long to see you standing before me.
And as the fog clears, I see you there,
Holding my heart in your hands.
My eyes swell up, filled with tears,
And my mind drifts away from me.
Leaving me with thoughts of yesteryears,
Hoping your heart has not drifted.
Then all clears away, it's just you and I,
Standing in the midst of a blackened earth.
I hold my tears back and vow not to cry,
Then you put your hand upon my shoulder.
A light shines down, from the heavens above,
Shining upon your very face.
I know you're the one I can never love,
Though you're holding my heart in your hands.
