Just Me

When Snow Falls at Night

It’s snowing here in Edinburgh, so it’s time to break out one of our Christmas songs again.

This one is called ‘When Snow Falls at Night’ and I wrote it three years ago for our Christmas concert in Dumfries.

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, 

When snow falls at night…
