Lyrics

So the saying goes, darkest 'fore the dawn

wake up early, find Christmas lights still on

and the cars go slowly, slowly, walkers make their way

on the radio holy, holy, it's another holiday

 

Spin around the sun, Earth turns again

something 'bout that motion makes us remember when

the world was quiet, waiting for a savior's sound

a time when we were lost, but oh so certain we would be found

(chorus)

Days grow colder, and the stars crown the night as king

hearts grow bolder when we join together singing

 

Set the table well, put out the finest glass

don't turn away your eyes, let this moment pass

though we're feeling lonely, so lonely for those we left behind

let's stop and savor slowly. slowly every echo in mind

 

oh I miss you, Mama; love to see you, Dad

how I pine for, lover, the crazy life we had

do you ever think about me, my old friend?

it's times like these I pray that this scarlet silence ends

(chorus)

Days grow colder, and the stars crown the night as king

hearts grow bolder as we join together singing
