lyrics

INTO THE DARK
Sue Smith c. SOCAN 2013

Heavy footprints in the fallen snow
Make a pathway I’m following
Where, I do not know

Down the hill, through the wood
Over the river
Into the dark
Down the hill, through the wood
Over the river
Into the dark

The wind is calling
The snow has drifted
All the footprints disappeared
But still I follow

The turning season
Has called to me
Come and walk through the darkness
Toward the little light

Down the hill, through the wood
Over the river
Into the dark
Down the hill, through the wood
Over the river
Into the dark

There in the distance
A beckoning glow in a window pane
Flicker of firelight
The door flung wide
Kind welcome for a stranger

The turning season
Has called to me
Come and walk through the darkness
Toward the little light

Down the hill, through the wood
Over the river
Into the dark
Down the hill, through the wood
Over the river
Into the dark
