snowbound lyrics – genesis

lay your body down upon the midnight snow
feel the cold of winter in your hair
here in a world of your own
in a casing that’s grown
to the children’s delight
that arrived on the night

here they come to play their magic games
carving names upon your frozen hand
here in a world of your own
like a sleeper whose eyes
sees the pain with surprise
as it smothers your cries
they’ll never, never know

hey there’s a snowman
hey, hey what a snowman
pray for the snowman
ooh, ooh what a snowman
they say a snow year’s a good year
filled with the love of all who lie so deep

smiling faces tear your body to the ground
covered red that only we can see
here in a ball that they made
from the snow on the ground
see it rolling away
with wild eyes to the sky
they’ll never, never know

hey there’s a snowman
hey what a snowman
pray for the snowman
ooh, ooh what a snowman
they say a snow year’s a good year
filled with the love of all who lie so deep

hey there goes the snowman
hey there what a snowman
hey there lies a snowman
hey there was a snowman
they say a snow year’s a good year
filled with the love of all who lie so deep

hey there goes the snowman …
