LILACS IN THE SNOW

Written & Composed by Michael Woodhead
Copyright © 1968, 2020

What we say
Where we go
Fly away
No one knows
Only lilacs in the snow

What to do
When to show
Many truths
I don't know
Ask the lilacs in the snow

They can tell you many things
They can show the way
They remember everything
Tomorrow's yesterday

Are you sure
That you know
If it's pure
Where you go
Ask the lilacs in the snow

If you're wrong
Take it slow
Just keep strong
Start to grow
With the lilacs in the snow

They can tell you many things
They can show the way
They remember everything
Tomorrow's yesterday

What we say
Where we go
Fly away
No one knows
Only lilacs in the snow

Dedicated to Robert (Bob) Brownscombe, 1945-1997
Former member of the band 'The Carnival'
