Prog folk-rock music from Scotland
Written for Christmas 2009, but a song with a powerful theme for any time of the year.
Words and Music: Noel Chidwick
A simple song. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all slow down, take our time over things and just enjoy what we have.
Noel: Lead vocals, acoustic guitar, synths
Mark: backing vocals, lead guitar, bass guitar
When snow falls at night, There’s a hush in the darkness
The peace that you feel is the breath of the Earth.
Catch the air cold and crisp, taste the flakes falling on your tongue,
Your warmth beside me is more than I deserve,
More than I deserve,
Slow down take it easy, take your time there’s no hurry
Stop. Look around, enjoy what you have.
Sometimes you have to let go, watch the world from your window
Christmas is a good time to take a new path.
To take a new path.
The daft days are the days between Christmas and Hogmanay.
Let’s take a walk to look back and before.
With the blue sky above and the white hills beneath our feet
Our worries dissolve with the turn of the door.
Life’s not a race, no winners or losers
The planet’s too small, there’s nowhere to run
Santa can’t leave us presents for ever…
Turn off your screens, step from your car my friend,
Put away your phone, take the buds from your ears.
How did we fall into digital slavery,
Let’s cast off our toys, raise a glass and sing cheers………….
When snow falls at night…
recorded and mixed at Fireside Studios,
mastered by John Rogers at Big Label Sound Studio
