Lyrics

Carolina Snowfall
(Miriam Sonstenes)

As I wake to the silence of the morning
I see the snow that has fallen all around
And as I climb up to the hillside I am thinking
Of all the good friends and joy that we have found

It’s a long way back from Carolina
It was a hard road getting to here
Now winter’s coming on, there’s a feeling getting strong
It’s just you that I wanna be near, it’s you I wanna be near

Now the snow’s fallin’ heavy in the valley
We keep the fire in the cabin burning low
And the hours slip away playing music
It’s just enough to keep from thinking ’bout home

It’s a long way back from Carolina
It was a hard road getting to here
Now winter’s coming on, there’s a feeling getting strong
It’s just you that I wanna be near, it’s you I wanna be near

So many places on the way that I’ll remember
So many times when we did not feel alone
But it’s good to put my arms around you darlin’
it’s only here that I know I’m really home

It’s a long way back from Carolina
It was a hard road getting to here
Now winter’s coming on, there’s a feeling getting strong
It’s just you that I wanna be near, it’s you I wanna be near
 

The Letter
(Miriam Sonstenes)

Should I write you a letter
Would you read it at all
Would it help you to stand up or cause you to fall
‘Cause you’re building a fortress
And the walls are so high
Does a bird in a cage still know how to fly

When I write you that letter
I would write about love
I would try to remind you of what you still have
You have beauty and freedom
And your eyes how they shine
You should take what you want now, you’ve still got time

Raise your eyes up, shake your wings and try
You will feel the wind, and fly

If you don’t get my letter
Maybe it’s better that way
We’ll carry our stories til the end of our days
‘Cause I won’t be beside you
You have mountains to climb
But I’ll see you again if our paths cross in time

Raise your eyes up shake those wings and try
You will feel the wind, and fly

Should I write you a letter
Would you read it at all
Would it help you to stand up or cause you to fall
