Snowman

Originally written November 20, 2000

 [verse] 
a year of snow fell that day 
nary a child could stay away 
angels, igloos and men of kinds 
creations all from eager minds 

and under the pines near the hill 
the freshest snow lay quiet, still 
there stood a man built from snow 
alone, where the wind won’t blow 

[chorus] 
loneliness stands beneath the pines 
the snowman waits for Valentines 
a heart of ice in a soul of steam
the snowman lives a silent dream 

[verse] 
one warmer day, the sun did shine 
and found its way through the pine 
it touched his heart, a warm embrace 
while the smile melted from his face 

suddenly in his snowy mind 
he knew he’d never stand till Valentines 
the love he waited for, may never come 
his closest love, was now the sun 

[chorus] 
loneliness stands beneath the pines 
the snowman waits for Valentines 
a heart of ice in a soul of steam 
the snowman lives a silent dream 

[bridge] 
and someday… it all will melt 
never mind how we felt 
life’s too short to stand and wait 
we have the freedom to make our fate 
so if you have a soul of steam 
never live a silent dream 

’cause…
 [chorus] 
loneliness stands beneath the pines 
the snowman waits for Valentines 
a heart of ice in a soul of steam 
the snowman lives a silent dream
