The Snow on the Roof

Charlie Murphy suggested ‘the snow on the roof’ as the germ of a song, years ago.  This is what sprouted.

The snow on the roof has a story to tell
It’s been an ocean
It’s been a river
It’s been everywhere
since the beginning of it all

Inside we could be safe
Inside we could be warm
Outside it could be beautiful

The snow on the roof has a story to tell
It’s been crystals
It’s been icicles
It’s been prayed for
by a farmer in July

Inside we could be safe
Inside we could be warm
Outside it could be beautiful

The snow comes from the universe
It once was acid rain
As stardust it showered the earth
As blood it passed through your veins
Will spring wait? Must it wait? Can spring wait a while?
Will we wait? Must we wait? Can we wait a while this time?

Inside we could be safe
Inside we could be warm
Outside it could be beautiful
Inside could we be safe?
Inside could we be warm?
Outside could it be beautiful?
Inside should we be safe?
Inside would we be warm?
Outside could it be beautiful?
