‘Snow’- Sleeping At Last

Go ahead and press play below on ‘Snow’ by Sleeping At Last and read the lyrics as it plays through. As Heather at Fuel/Friends said in her write-up of the song as part of her freshly posted, wholly wonderful 2012 Holiday Mix, this is the perfect summation of what any of us could hope for this holiday season. Mannnnnnnnnnn. Enjoy.

 

 

The branches have traded their leaves for white seeds
all warm-blooded creatures make ghosts as they breathe
scarves are wrapped tightly like gifts under trees
christmas lights tangle in knots annually

Our families huddled closely, betting warmth against the cold
and our bruises seem to surface like mud beneath the snow
so we sing carols softly, as sweet as we know
and pray that our burdens will lift as we go
like young love still waiting under mistletoe
welcome December, with tireless hope

Let our bells keep on ringing, making angels in the snow
and may the melody disarm us when the cracks begin to show
like the petals in our pockets, may we remember who we are:
unconditionally cared for by those who share our broken hearts

The table is set and all glasses are full
no pieces go missing, may we still a feel a hole
we’ll build new traditions in place of the old
’cause life without revision will silence our souls

Let the bells keep on ringing, making angels in the snow
and may the melody surround us when the cracks begin to show
like the petals in our pockets, may we remember who we are:
unconditionally cared for by those who share our broken hearts

As gentle as feathers the snow piles high
our world gets rewritten, and retraced every time
like fresh paints and clean slates, our future is white
new year’s resolutions will reset tonight.

    Gorgeous. 38 degrees celcius where I am today…we have a strange relationship with the dominant Christmas themes of smow and winter.
