Story

This is my brand new release of A Little Snowflake. The song was written a few weeks ago for FAWM (February Album Writing Month) and initially done as a quick demo recording. I really felt that there was something special about this one though, and wanted to give it more attention.

The song is about domestic violence, and trying to help someone escape. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Lyrics

Just a little snowflake, falling to the ground

Likely it won't stay long, to chill the air just beyond

So insignificant and lonely, you've got to look hard just to see

Before long more will follow, making it harder just to breathe

Oh, bit by bit they fall

Till you're buried by the weight of it all

 

It began just like that snowflake

Harsh words spoken in the dark

Leaving you frozen inside

Appearing fine without

Words becoming tone, becoming volume

Until fists fly like a storm once in a lifetime

Until it happens again and again and again and again and again

Until the end

Seems you're worth less than nothing to him

 

You keep thinking that a shovel will help you clear a path

Back to where you once were, and all the love you had

But everything that you try, just rubs salt in the wound

Can't help but be angry, and he takes it out on you

Oh, bit by bit they fall

Bruises partly hidden by a shawl

 

It began just like that snowflake

Harsh words spoken in the dark

Leaving you broken inside

Appearing fine without

Words becoming tone, becoming volume

Until fists fly like a storm, once in a lifetime

Until it happens again and again and again and again and again

Until the end

Seems you're worth less than nothing to him

 

I'm reaching out a lifeline

Oh, just take my hand

I'll help you find some safety

And help you learn to stand

 

It began just like that snowflake

Harsh words spoken in the dark

Leaving you frozen inside

Appearing fine without

Words becoming tone, becoming volume

Until fists fly like a storm, once in a lifetime

It doesn't have to happen again and again and again and again and again

This doesn't have to be the end

This doesn't have to be the end
