I don't have too much to say about this song. Anyone who has ever lived through a Vermont winter should get it.

This album version uses the vocal take I did for the demo I made on the day I wrote the song. The feeling was fresh in my mind and I knew I wouldn't be able to re-create it so I kept it as is.


One time in a little town
she called me up to say
The snow might bring me down
if it doesn't go away

Ten feet beneath the snow
A candle lights a room
My shovel, where did it go
It's right next to the broom

I step out into the cold
Make a path to the street
Through the snow

I lost my sense of time
in the snow bank by the shed
You drove up just in time
To see me hit my head

The sun is in disguise
When clouds of Winter pass
There's the sunshine in your eyes
When I made you laugh

You step out into the cold
Walk the path I just made
Through the snow

Was that really so hard?
Or was it just a passing thing?
Is it really the snow
or something buried deep within?

One time in a little town
We sat beneath the snow
If the candle burned away
She forgot and let it go
