From the recording A Little Snowflake

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

New song demos will be added here throughout the month of February.
