Leaving My Tracks in the Snow, #SongLyricSunday

That voice. That violin. Talk about girl power.

For this week’s
Song Lyric Sunday,
I am simply choosing a few girls, as the prompt suggests, to feature a lovely team of artists.

Not a word as a lyric, but I wanted to feature this particular song this month:

You tell me this isn’t worth featuring?

***

How pale is the sky that brings forth the rain
As the changing of seasons prepares me again
For the long bitter nights and the wild winter’s day
My heart has grown cold, my love stored away
My heart has grown cold, my love stored away

I’ve been to the mountain, left my tracks in the snow
Where souls have been lost and the walking wounded go
I’ve taken the pain no girl should endure
Faith can move mountains; of that I am sure
But faith can move mountains; of that I am sure

Just get me through December
A promise I’ll remember
Get me through December
So I can start again

No divine purpose brings freedom from sin
And peace is a gift that must come from within
I’ve looked for the love that will bring me to rest
Feeding this hunger beating strong in my chest
Feeding this hunger beating strong in my chest

Get me through December
A promise I’ll remember
Get me through December
So I can start again

Songwriters: Fred Lavery / Gordie Sampson

This song makes me want to cry, both from the sorts of emotions it brings up in me and also from the beauty of the song itself.

December makes me happy and it makes me sad at the same time. Sometimes I want to bask in these days, leading up to Christmas, and sometimes I only want some help getting through December to a brand new year.
