Prefab Sprout — The Ice Maiden lyrics

Standing on the boulevard

You wish to know my name

I'm the ice maiden

I think perhaps you like being unhappy

I'm the ice maiden - the limit of your dreams

Arctic winds blow and still you believe

Loves makes you one of the chosen

Die in the snow - I'll never grieve

So what if tomorrow you're frozen

Death is a small price for heaven

Welcome to the glow of high octane affairs

Esperanto style and blonde disheveled hair

Subterranean streams, duckling you're a swan

Infinites of dreams imploding into one

All those nights I dreamt of you

I wonder where they've gone

You're the ice maiden

Standing on the boulevard

I've always known your name

You're the ice maiden

Let you and I grow frosty together

You're the ice maiden - today you meet your match

Girl when I burn - hell nothing's the same

I'll singe your pretty blonde lashes

We're talking fire - we're talking flame

We're talking ice into ashes

But death is a small price for heaven

All those nights I dreamt of you

I wonder where they've gone

Girl when I burn - hell nothing's the same

I'll singe your pretty blonde lashes

We're talking fire - we're talking flame

We're talking ice into ashes

But death is a small price for heaven
