Fades to White (Snow Song) (lyric)

The snow is falling down on the street
Lays a heavy blanket on the ground
Whispers winter soft beneath my feet
Covers all my tracks when I'm gone

And everything around fades to white
And everything behind fades away
I breathe a silent cloud into the cold and silent night
And watch it floating up into the air

The houses on my block are all aglow
With rows and rows of colored Christmas lights
And, rustling the wreath upon the door
Another year slips out without saying goodbye

And everything around fades to white
And everything behind fades away
I breathe a silent cloud into the cold and silent night
And watch it floating up into the air

Snow still coming down, thick and white
Turns the earth so still, so pure and blank
In the morning, will it turn to ice
Or will the children come to make angels and men?

And everything around fades to white
And everything behind fades away
I breathe a silent cloud into the cold and silent night
And watch it float away somewhere
