When I first read Doug's lyrics, I immediately was drawn into this heart-breaking story. He kindly allowed me to tweak a few lines to work for my performance. Hope you like this!
An avalanche is on the verge:
A winter's worth of snow
Threatening to submerge
The home we built below
1. A chilling wind comes blowing through the Colorado trees and the snow's been building up for way too long.
I always thought the love we shared was more than evergreen; your needle and your spoon have made me wrong.
2. We moved here to flee the race and ski the Rocky's slopes and to roam the mountain meadows in the sun.
Your start-up business hit a wall, dashing all your hopes. Now, every day you're coming more undone.
I can't seem to reach the you I love.
I can't pull you out of your blues
When powder means one thing to me
And something else to you.
Our home's become a house
Through this stormy weather.
I can't save this home all on my own
When we built it together.
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
