Mark Knopfler

Mark Knopfler - What It Is

The lamp is burnin’ low upon my table top

The snow is softly fallin’

The air is still within the silence of my room

I hear your voice softly callin’

If I could only have you near

To breathe a sigh or two

I would be happy just to hold the hands I love

Upon this winter night with you

The smoke is rising in the shadows overhead

My glass is almost empty

I read again between the lines upon the page

The words of love you sent me

If I could know within my heart

That you were lonely too

I would be happy just to hold the hands I love

Upon this winter night with you

The fire is dying now, my lamp is growing dim

The shades of night are liftin’

The mornin’ light steals across my windowpane

Where webs of snow are driftin’

If I could only have you near

To breathe a sigh or two

I would be happy just to hold the hands I love

And to be once again with with you

To be once again with with you
