lyrics

I was afraid
You always came in like a ghost
Snow falling soft from your coat
Lighting our lanterns with whispers and prayers

I stayed up late
You always sang me right to sleep
Glittering lights in the trees
You held our dreams out like stars everywhere

CHORUS:
I wish you could come
now like you used to
I wish you could come
now like you used to
I’d love to bring you back

When I was alone
You always spoke like something old
Magic and lights in the cold
I’d breathe you in like a wind on my soul

I’d close my eyes
You always came in like a breath
Quiet and still while we slept
December days falling graceful and gold

CHORUS

I’ve held them close
Winters I so wish I could find
Angels and wonders and signs
Joseph and Mary, a stable, a star

CHORUS
