The Ice Is Getting Thinner Lyrics
We're not the same, dear, as we used to be.
The seasons have changed and so have we.
There was little we could say, and even less that we could do
To stop the ice from getting thinner under me and you.

We bury our love in a wintery grave
A lump in the snow, was all that remained.
But we stayed by its side as the days turned to weeks
As the ice kept getting thinner with every word that we'd speak.

And when spring arrived
We were taken by surprise when the floes under our feet
Bled into the sea
And nothing was left for you and me.

We're not the same, dear,
And it seems to me
There's nowhere we can go
With nothing underneath.
And it saddens me to say
What we both knew was true:
That the ice was getting thinner
Under me and you.
That the ice was getting thinner
Under me and you.
