From the recording In A Cold World

Lyrics

VERSE
The past is like a shadow, always at your heels
She did not know she could be so low or how bad she could feel
If it’s darkest just before the dawn, daybreak must be soon
Everything she had is gone; it’s like an empty room

CHORUS
Now she don’t care about much here at Christmas time
So cold and so much snow; such an uphill climb
Life can be so like a winter storm
And in a cold world, you need a friend to keep you warm

VERSE
If clouds have silver linings, silver linings must have clouds
It’s so very hard to get back up when you’re lower than the ground
There’s not much worse in this old world than comin’ all unwound
’Cause you trusted someone with your heart who let you down

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
Hello, friend, come on in
Sit right here by my side near the Christmas fire
And let’s make the world go away

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
In a cold world, you need a friend to keep you warm
