Chorus:
Once I was a lone,
So, lone - ly and then,
You came, out of no - where,
Like the sun up from the hills.
Cold, cold was the wind,
Warm, warm were your lips,
Out there, on the ski trail,
Where your kiss filled me with thrills.
 
Bridge:
A week - end in Ca - na - da, a change of scene,
Was the most I bar - gained for.
And then I dis - cov - ered you, and in your eyes,
I found a 1ove that I could - n't ig - nore.
 
Chorus:
Down, down came the sun,
Fast, fast beat my heart.
I knew, as the sun set,
From that day, we'd nev - er part.
