The (C)warmth comes to the (G)land now
It's (C)time for moving (D)on

My (C)thoughts turn to a(G)nother time
I re(C)member the coalface (D)men

Lyrics Without The Chords
When the risk of frost is over
And the sun seeks the shadows on Bilston Glen
My thoughts turn to another time
I remember the coalface men
The curious ivy climbs so high
And covers the mines, as the mills before
And all things changed in these colliery towns
With the strike of '84
Chorus
And maybe it's time to say goodbye
Those damned days, just let them lie
Though their dream should never die
It's time for moving on
When the risk of frost is over
And flowers of spring are all around
Hiding all those memories
When fathers fought with sons
When the risk of frost is over
And winter’s snows past and gone
The warmth comes to the land now
It's time for moving on
Chorus
When the risk of frost is over
And December grey has turned to green
I walk the fields of Lothian
And remember the price theypaid
When the risk of frost is over
The sun seeks the shadows on Bilston Glen
My thoughts turn to another time
I remember the coalface men
Chorus
It's (time for moving on
