about

This is a winter song. I've written before of navigating the winter, and drawing closer together in order to get through it. It's an old idea -- an ancient necessity. While the obvious need for warmth is far more simply met with the heat of another, there is also the inevitability of challenge and trial that comes with the season. Even though many of us face the winter in relative safety from the elements, there is yet the pervasive sense that the challenge of living becomes more acute, that we wouldn't make it through without teaming up. When we can, we become part of each other and turn to face the cold together.

lyrics

Behold the Earth is turning
And it brings us back to this
We hold each other up
And place our feet upon the ice
We shield each other's faces
As we turn into the wind
We warm each other's bodies
As we travel through the night

We are part of this
Turn your face to it
We are part of this
Turn your face to it
We are part of this
Turn your face to it
We are part of this
Turn your face to it
