From the album LIGHTING OUT

Lyrics

New Snow (for Kate McGarrigle)


Surprised by my own tear
When I first heard
you'd gone from here -
I guess my heart knew
just how much it'd been touched by you

Oh! How you filled the air,
with forgotten sound
Remembered from somewhere
I'd listen for you
when I needed to hear
something dear and true

Goodbye, sweet melody
though you'll never disappear
All that beauty's still out there, somewhere

You left in the hardest of winter,
though in the new snow
your footsteps still show
You're lost but you're found
The trail that you left
circles round and round

We'll listen for your sound
in the flow of the river,
in the quiet town,
in the rush of the city,
In far away places
that we haven't found

Goodbye, sweet melody
though you'll never disappear
All that beauty's still out there, somewhere
