Lyrics

SNOW

Like the snowflakes falling, 

settling on the ground,

gathering into towering drifts 

that shut a city down, 

it starts so small and softly, 

it’s barely seen or heard.

Yet each day we grow in number 

as we work to spread the word.

 

I won’t deny we’re living in an age of darkness.

I won’t pretend to know 

that it will all get better someday.

But the few of us whose eyes are open 

wide enough to see what’s goin’ on

need to be brave enough and strong.

 

And keep on watching. 

We dare not look away.

And Keep on working. 

There is no other way.

Though we may not see the changes 

we struggle to achielve,

in the face of apathy, 

we’ll stand up for what we believe.

 

Like the spark igniting 

leaves upon the ground,

fanned into the fiery flames 

that brought the forest down,

this tiny spark of warmth and light 

somehow sustains its glow

and spreads its sparkle ‘round the planet 

as our numbers grow.

 

I won’t deny we’re living in an age of darkness.

I won’t pretend to know 

that it will all get better someday.

But the few of us whose eyes are open 

wide enough to see what’s goin’ on

need to be brave enough and strong. 

 

A day is coming, 

though it may not be coming soon.

Maybe our children 

will be the ones to see it through.

And they will need to know the truths 

we were compelled to stand behind.

And they will need to see the images 

and words that moved our minds.

And they will need to know the dreams 

that we have clung to all our lives.

And they will need to hear the songs 

that helped our spirits to survive

to survive.
