Nice mood-setting vocal and instrumental arrangement. There's a John Sebastian-like quality to this song. Very cool.

    - Sam Cooper

Very poetic! A descript recalling of youth into adulthood and then into the golden years.. a swan song.

    - Nick Coleman and Cole Crawford Hurst
Lyrics

Northern Climes

Music and Lyrics by: Bill Dake
Copyright 2015 billdakemusic ASCAP

Copper cool and nickel bright
Frozen moon framed in anthracite
With two ruddy faces we taste the breeze
Blowin' winter sharp
Through the skeleton trees
A good excuse for sippin' antifreeze

Most of our friends have eased away
Off to the dessert for their final days
To bleach their bones in the cactus sun
Trustin' the heat to keep them ever young
'Till their dancin' dreams are done

But, you and I
We'll stick it out in these Northern Climes
Where the mountains hold court
Over the valley pines
And rivers speak in crystal tongues
Of grizzly bears and midnight suns
Where stars that set cold hearts aflame
Flood the sky with silver rain

Huddled together in our wrinkled skin
Laughin' and grinnin' at the bitter wind
You're a snow princess, I'm a troubadour
Caught up in magic, can't ignore
The aurora borealis kissin' heaven's door

So we'll
Finish it up in these Northern Climes
Where the mountains hold court
Over the valley pines
And rivers speak in crystal tongues
Of grizzly bears and midnight suns
Where stars that set cold hearts aflame
Flood the sky with silver rain

When our time finally ends, as it does for us all
Hope they'll scatter our dust, pray they'll let it fall
High
In these Northern Climes
