about

During a recent songwriting retreat with Chris Difford (co-founder and songwriter of British band Squeeze) I had the pleasure of writing with Northern Irish Singer/Songwriter Richard Murray. Within a few hours of meeting we had put this song together and recorded it. All first takes, this is how it came out. We're pretty pleased with it.

lyrics

Lyrics: The Melting Snow

It's been a long and stormy winter
It's been a dark and dreary time
I've kept my cards close to my chest
I've held my breath since last July

I heard your crime had made the headlines
My neighbour broke the news
But we have starved and we have suffered
We have worked and paid our dues

I wont tell the Sheriff or the Priest
Keep it buried with the fallen leaves
And when this wintertime goes
It'll pass with the melting snow

I keep a trinket in my garden
Wrapped in cloth and yellow twine
It's as close to a confession as we'll go
You've done your time

I wont tell the Sheriff or the Priest
Keep it buried with the fallen leaves
And when this wintertime goes
It'll pass with the melting snow
