“There’s a hush in the darkness.”

I wrote this song a couple of years ago for our Christmas concert in Dumfries. Hope you like it:

This was recorded with Mark Toner on guitar and harmony vocals and Jenny Johnson on piano, my learned colleagues of Arbelos.

 

When snow falls at night, There’s a hush in the darkness

The peace that you feel is the breath of the Earth.

Catch the air cold and crisp, taste the flakes falling on your tongue,

Your warmth beside me is more than I deserve,

More than I deserve,

 

Chorus

Slow down take it easy, take your time there’s no hurry

Stop. Look around, enjoy what you have.

Sometimes you have to let go, watch the world from your window

Christmas is a good time to take a new path.

To take a new path.

 

The daft days are the days between Christmas and Hogmanay.

Let’s take a walk to look back and before.

With the blue sky above and the white hills beneath our feet

Our worries dissolve with the turn of the door.

 

Life’s not a race, no winners or losers

The planet’s too small, there’s nowhere to run

Santa can’t leave us presents for ever…

 

Turn off your screens, step from your car my friend,

Put away your phone, take the buds from your ears.

How did we fall into digital slavery,

Let’s cast off our toys, raise a glass and sing cheers………….

 

When snow falls at night, There’s a hush in the darkness

The peace that you feel is the breath of the Earth.

Catch the air cold and crisp, taste the flakes falling on your tongue,

Your warmth beside me is more than I deserve,

More than I deserve…
