The Ice is Getting Thinner Lyrics

We're not the same, dear, as we used to be.
The seasons have changed and so have we.
There was little we could say, and even less we could do
To stop the ice from getting thinner under me and you.

We bury our love in the wintery grave

    i think its not necessarily about a relationship which is pretty much over,its about a relationship which has been waiting get developed.the feelings have always been there,but its too complicated to start ANYTHING.silent love.

    I think that this is about a relationship that is ending. Things have changed between the two people and that has forced them apart. There was not much they could do to stay as close as they were, rather had to really give in to what was inevitable. They tried to stay in the relationship as long as they could, but at one point it just had to end. I really like the imagery used in this song and it invokes a lot of emotion for me.
