Track Name: Slipping in the Snow
Again the snow will fall/We’ll get caught up in the breadth of it all/I’ll pray for a reprieve/From the ice that’s coming down in sheets/And all I see is what’s in front of me/I need my home in the east/I need my rising sun/I need my manger of peace/I need the holy one/Another Christmas Eve/Another night on the run/From the one’s who love me so/The candles by my bed/Will light anew—anoint my head/Like slipping where you tread/Your feet will get ahead of you/You’ll try to fly but oh, your wings are wrapped tight/[Chorus]/Light a fire for me/I’m coming home/For Christmas morning/I’ll brave the snow/I don’t need any presents/Just catch me ‘fore I’m too far gone/[Chorus]/I need to go home.
