Snow Globe

lyrics

In a snow globe, kneeling down;
That’s where I found you, staring out.
Caught in winter, set apart,
With a nearly broken, frozen heart,

He treated you worse than I want to say;
It‘s for souls like his I know I’m supposed to pray.
But glass can’t stop the march of light,
That’s pouring in as we find…

This could be spring,
This could be spring.
While winter was raging,
Something good has been blossoming.
Up through the dirt,
The truth works its way,
To greet the sun;
Should have been us all along.

We cracked the snow globe and you stepped down,
Into a clearing of greens and browns.
And through the trees, and waking land;
Took our first nervous steps hand in hand.

Now the sun burns off the morning fog,
Each day in this place we’ve got.
And our old darkness fades away;
Into memory,
So we can say:

Here is the spring,
Here is the spring.
While winter was raging,
Something good had been blossoming.
Up through the dirt,
The truth worked its way,
To greet the sun;
Should have been us all along.
