It keeps coming back to me
I remember this pain
Ir spreads across my eyes
Everything is dull

Everyone's smiling, they're smiling
It pushes me far far away
I can't understand
Everything is blue

Can you hear me out there?

Will you hold me now...? Hold me now, My frozen heart
I'm gazing from the distance and
I feel everything pass through me
I can't be alone right now
Will you hold me now...? Hold me now, My frozen heart
I'm lost in a deep winter sleep
I can't seem to find my way out alone
Can you wake me?

I know when I let it in
It hides love from this moment
So I guard it close
I watch the move it makes

But ir gets me, but it gets me
I wish I could understand how I
Could make it disappear, make it disappear

Anyone out there hear me now?

Will you hold me now...? Hold me now, My frozen heart
Kiss my lips and maybe you can take to your world for now
I can't be alone right now
Will you hold me now...? Hold me now, My frozen heart
Please make it all go away
Am I ever gonna feel myself again?
I hope I will

Will you hold me now...? Hold me now, My frozen heart
I'm gazing from the distance and
I feel everything pass through me
I can't be alone right now
Will you hold me now...? Hold me now, My frozen heart
I'm lost in a deep winter sleep
I can't seem to find my way out alone
Can you wake me?


I'm never a fan of Olivia Lufkin despite liking a whispery, light soprano voice, which enhances any haunting songs, but this is exceptional simply because two things of this song attracted me. First is its beginning: an echo rippling tune accompany by piano makes me curious to know more of this song. Second is its lyrics. The lyrics are heartbroken and I find it simple to grasp and empathy.

To be frank, this is the slowest tempo music I have ever heard Olivia singing, as she often sings rock music. The other slow music she sang was A Little Pain, a soundtrack to the same anime of this soundtrack: Nana, which is also one my favourites. Even though this song is slow and somehow soothing, which is really my cup of tea, I find this song is not sang hauntingly enough. Imagine this song is sang with the same technique as My Immortal by Evanescence... would you think this song would have more sadness impact on the listeners? Please read this with an open mind that I'm not criticizing Olvia's singing whatsoever. I can feel her emotions in the song and I know this song is not easy to sing, because it needs a lot of emotions. I love this song as it is, but I was talking on improvement, or alternative way of singing it.

By listening to this song, I felt myself come to a standstill and just got attracted to this dreamily yet mild haunting soft voice.

Overall, this song is suitable to listen at all time, whether or not you are in a happy or emo mood. Why not? It is such a great music. Nana anime has such great soundtracks after Full Moon wo Sagashite.

[Sorry for double posting the lyrics because I thought you would be able to read the lyrics along with my comments without glueing your eyes only to the youtube video. Just making your multitasking more effcient. :)]

Hmmm
I like this song too...probably because I enjoy anything with piano. Her voice isn't my favorite, but it has a nice ring to it...I added this to my playlist haha. I've been getting a lot of new music from nutang lately

Nice song. I feel a bit sleepy listening to it, it's as though the tune coaxes people to sleep. Lol.

Winter Sleep - Olivia Lufkin
LOL, is this because I have Winter Sleep in my blog playlist? I just changed my playlist though. :P

Yeah, I've never been a fan of Olivia's myself. I'm more into Anna's. That woman can really sing live. And I only like singers who can sing live.

But even I myself was drawn to Winter Sleep. It is one of the best songs Olivia has.
