    The song “Water on snow” is one of the most beautyful and deep song I ever heard ! And I can assure you all that I heard a lot of songs.

    But I’m pretty sure there is two errors in the lyrics given by this page, and so on, in every pages of lyrics for this song on the net, as it is the official site of Colin.

    Here they are : on the text, we can read :

    “A beautiful refrain, dust with stars
    But your smile now in disguise became a flat line”

    But if you listen carefully to the song, you can here that it’s not what he says ! He says :
    “A beautiful refrain, DUET with stars
    But your smile now IN THIS SKY became a flat line”.
    And force is to recognise it’s much more poetic and in harmony with the rest of the verse.

    What do you think about it ?
    Aren’t those two sentences mistakes on this site ?

    Thank you to answer me, who ever you are, you who manage this web site, still Colin is unfortunately dead.

      Hi David,
      Thanks for that – yes the word DUST should be Duet. We have changed this now.
      ‘Disguise’ is correct.
