From the album Beyond the Ash and Steel

Lyrics

The Snows They Melt the Soonest -Traditional

The snows they melts the soonest
when the wind begins to sing
And 
the corn it ripens fastest
when the frosts has settled in

And when a lover tells me that my face
he'll soon forget

Before we part I'll wage a crown he's fain to follow it yet
The snows they melt the soonest
when the wind begins to sing
And the swallow flies without a care
as long as it is spring

But when spring goes and winter blows
my love then you'll be fain

For all your pride to follow me
across the wintry main
The snows they melt the soonest
when the wind begins to sing

And the bee that flew
when summer shone in winter cannot sting

And I've seen a lover’s anger melt between the night and morn

So surely’s not a harder thing
to melt a lover's scorn
So don't you bid me farewell here
no farewell I'll receive

For you will lie with me, my love,
then kiss and take your leave

And I'll wait here till the moorcock calls
and the martin takes the wing

For the snows they melt the soonest when the wind begin to sing
When the wind begins to sing
