There's white fluff all over the ground
Silence at night as the snow falls down
Colder than usual for this part of the state
A week before Christmas, love before it's too late

Christmas is for caring and going on
Snowballs and snowmen to work upon
Hot food and spirits warmed by your touch
Giving to others singing and such

Parties and arguments about what to do
Leaving those upset who are loved by you
When it doesn't really matter who comes around
As long as the holidays are safe and sound

Have you been good this year and did you try?
To give in peacefully when you're wondering why
God is love and love is the King
Do you expect the Angels to bring

You everything that your heart desires
Or maybe sit with you to retire
By the warmth of a brick fireplace
Is that the snowy Sunday you face

Do you think of others out in the cold
Maybe lonely and crying because they've been sold
Out to the darkness and have lost all hope
Are you going to sit there in warm and tell them nope

You cannot help as you're in a hurry
While they freeze as the snow flurries
You don't even bother to give them some food
Just run on by them as if it's not rude

What if they once were just like you
With a home, a job, and the holidays to do
Wouldn't you want someone to share
When it's a snowy Sunday if you were out there?
