(Words and Music by Mark Levine)
In the winter cold winds blow in from grasslands to Beijing
Just like wild horses running ‘cross the plain
Those cold winds will never put out, the fire in my heart
And my love for you, my darling, will remain.
From the first time that we met, in the springtime in Beijing
It was clear to me it was a special thing.
I realized that because, just looking at you was
Enough to make the bells of my heart ring.
There’s a picture in my memory, of the day that I saw you
As my eyes met yours I knew that, my dream would soon come true
For this lovely China doll, I knew that I would fall
And since that time you have come to love me too.
Through the summer and the fall we were together
Now I’ve learned my love for you will last forever
Through the heat or in the rain, my heart won’t be restrained
And my longing for you grows in every weather.
