winter people…

I finished up the words and started a quick melody on this one last week. I love it, I really do and yet it makes me sad every single time I sing the melody. I suppose that’s alright. Maybe that’s what being one of the “winter people” means to me.

I wrote this with a couple of friends in mind though as well…other winter people I’ve found in the last 2 years. I recognized them first I think. I’m not even sure they know that they ARE winter people. That will be a good discussion one day.

Winter People

We both know
there’s always heavy somewhere
But we carry on
And yes, this is the wonder
Feel the deep dark hurt of the soul
And the wide truth
Of mirrors in our skin
Pack it up tight
a bundle on our backs
Walk a dirt road
being careful not to wander

We both know
it’s always winter somewhere
But we carry on
because we are winter people
Feel the deep dark hurt of the world
And the wide truth
Of mirrors in our skin
Pack it all tight
a bundle on our backs
Move along real slow
being careful not to let go

You’re the quiet voice
In the back of my head
Offers up, a simple cup
Because

We both know
There’s always thirsty somewhere
But we carry on
And yes, this is the wonder
Feel the deep dark thirst of the world
And the wide truth
Of mirrors in our skin
Pack it up tight
A bundle on our backs
Walk the long road
Because we are winter people
