I think it's actually:

Staring deep into the winter night
The crystal ground reflects a gleaming light
Let me hide beyond these empty (I'm not sure on this line.)
Wait and see
Only I can melt the snow in me

You arrived
You saved me from the fading stars
And the light you gave me filled my empty heart
Then you gently left(don't know this word.) my frozen tears away
Savior is your name today

As for me, I'm not too impressed with the previews. These songs just seem lower quality than her singles that she is going to be releasing based on the previews, but I won't be able to tell until I hear longer samples.

Staring deep into the winter night
The crystal glowing reflects a gleaming light,
but behind me is all this empty weight,
and see only I can melt the snow in me

(the rest seems okay, the meanings too)

less than a month left, how exciting :D

Information will be revealed later.
Have fun!
This is way overdue, but just a note... you translated "お楽しみに! [Otanoshimi ni!]" as "Have fun!" but it's actually a colloquial expression meaning "Look forward to it."

The new song composed and with lyrics written by Maaya herself, 'Chikai' was broadcast on the latest 'from everywhere' radio show. Some kind song uploaded the whole broadcast on Nico Nico, check it out at the 13 minute mark:

What do you think? We've now heard two songs from the album! Also, there's an instrumental version of 'zero to ichi' which is really rather nice while Maaya's talking.

It sounds a bit unpolished as a composition (well, it's only her second one ever!) but I really like it! Two thumbs up for the songs we've heard so far.

It's the Twitter account of one of the managers at IDS, if I remember correctly?...or Flying Dog...I can't remember. But he tweets a lot of Maaya goodness ^^

Seriously have had Melt the Snow in me and Chikai on repeat for the past couple of days...I cannot wait for next Wednesday.

Ditto, and FedEx should be delivering my package tomorrow morning. Getting the album one day early is a nice bonus. I also included the photobook in the same order. :D
