lyrics

Come January Snow - lyrics by Steven Smith

So, you find yourself another year older
And you stop and ask yourself, am I wiser or just growing colder?
You wrap up your thoughts
And resolute, next year I’m on top!

Oh the medicine, mulled wine and merriment
Works its way into your veins, you’re feeling quite content
And you find out what you’ve been missing
With the stranger’s embrace and midnight kisses

But oh when the clock strikes twelve, will they be gone, gone, gone?
And oh when the whisky dries, you say your goodbyes but those eyes
You’ll remember them so
Come January snow

So, they find themselves another year older
And they toast, laugh at the years, the nights, the nights are getting colder
And they wish for friends not here
Regret the time lost over the years

And oh when the clock strikes twelve, will they be gone, gone, gone?
And oh when the whisky dries, they say their goodbyes, hold on tight
Don’t let them go
Come January snow

So, I find myself another year older
Maybe I’m not richer, better, bigger, bolder
But I know what I must say
I can feel you drifting away

When the clock strikes twelve, I will be here for you
When the whisky dries, we will survive those cold nights
I’ll carry you home

And oh, when the clock strikes twelve, I will be here for you
And oh, when the whisky dries, we will survive those cold nights
I’ll carry you home
And on, on we must go
Come January snow
