Look for the video, coming soon -
I've spent most of my life in the Northeast, and Snow Days have always been a magical reality, transforming the Everyday and bringing unexpected beauty.. I hope you enjoy this song and that it finds a spot on your holiday playlist!
Do you remember when we were kids
Before the heartache of latter years
Had gathered on our souls?
When winter winds brought their bitter sting
And weathermen were the Blizzard Kings
As the air grew wet and cold
We'd greet dawn with wide-eyed wonder
And heard the radio call our number...
We're set free
The roadway is three feet deep
So there's no way
The bus'll be getting through
To me and you
The landscape is glistening
What's manmade has been wiped clean
Covered over and made new
All for me and you
All the homework our teachers planned
And our families' daily demands
Had now been swept away
In harmony, the neighbors appeared
In snow suits and winter gear
Together, for the day
And even Brian Smudz, that bully
Would join with us, all warm and wooly
On a Snow Day (Chorus)
Was this the neighborhood that we lived in?
Everything had changed, so white and crystalline.
It was all so strange, we had to grin
And it was such a shame
We'd have to go and make footprints.
Now in all the bustle and noise
It's hard to regain those childhood joys
It's hard to be in awe
But now and then, we get a taste
And each brilliant little glimpse of grace
Makes me want it all
Maybe someday when this world's outworn
We'll wake to find it all transformed
Like a Snow Day
