lyrics

light of winter

From the trains
I will be on the way now,
happy, soon to see you
in these blocks of town.
Let streets connect now,
let streets connect now.

Light of winter, I’m seeing you now,
light of winter, I’m seeing you now,
soon now.

Gentle lions, will you rise from these sidewalks
and walk beside me awhile.
Taxis arrive. The snow has arrived,
the snow has arrived.
Light of winter, I’m seeing you now,
soon now.

And the traffic is no match at all for any mom,
and the weather is no match at all for any mom,
any dad.

From the trains
every light may soon give way to green.
From the trains
I will be on the way now.
Let streets connect now,
let streets connect now.

Light of winter, I’m seeing you now,
light of winter, I’m seeing you now,
soon now.
