[G] The lamp is [D] burning low up [Em] on my table [C] top
[G] The snow is [D] softly [G] falling [D]
[G] The air is [D] still within the [Em] silence of my [C] room
[G] I hear your [D] voice softly [G] calling [G]

Chorus
If [G] I could [D] only [C] have you [D] near
[Bm] To breathe a [Em] sigh or [C] two [D]
[G] I would be [D] happy just to [Em] hold the hands I [C] love
[G] On this [D] winter's night with [G] you [D]

[G] The smoke is [D] rising in the [Em] shadows over- [C] head
[G] My glass is [D] almost [G] empty [D]
[G] I read a- [D] gain between the [Em] lines upon each [C] page
[G] The words of [D] love you [G] send me [G]

Chorus
If [G] I could [D] know with- [C] in my [D] heart
[Bm] That you were [Em] lonely [C] too [D]
[G] I would be [D] happy just to [Em] hold the hands I [C] love
[G] On this [D] winter's night with [G] you [D]

[G] The fire is [D] dying now my [Em] lamp is getting [C] dim
[G] The shades of [D] night are [G] lifting [D]
[G] The morning [D] light steals a- [Em] cross my window [C] pane
[G] Where webs of [D] snow are [G] drifting [G]

Chorus
If [G] I could [D] only [C] have you [D] near
[Bm] To breathe a [Em] sigh or [C] two [D]
[G] I would be [D] happy just to [Em] hold the hands I [C] love
[G] On this [D] winter's night with [B7] you [Em]
[C] And to be [D] once again with [G] ↓ you
