  • There was snow
    There was snow, stretched for miles and more
    Where we buried
    Where we buried our souls

    Oh I long, oh I long for them days
    Left and gone
    Where we sang and where danced
    To a brighter song

    But now I look upon a field with bodies stretched out
    And I feel nothing
    But something's burning in my soul, I let it lose control
    And I'm in, oh God I've sinned

    But I tried so hard and we tried so hard
    And it's a long, long road that you told me, so
    Yeah I tried so hard to forget where we are
    And all we do is laugh and we sing

    Woo woo and we laughed oh and we cried
    And thought, oh, what a life

    Woo woo and we laughed oh and we cried
    And thought, oh, what a life
    And we laughed and we cried
    And thought, oh, what a life

    But I tried so hard, but we killed our hearts
    In valleys low, I hear the trumpets blow
    Ya I tired so hard, yet I'm lost and scared
    And I'm filled with regret, yet I sing

    Woo woo and we laughed oh and we cried
    And thought, oh what a life
    Woo woo and we laughed oh and we cried
    And thought, oh, what a life

    And we laughed oh and we cried
    And thought, oh, what a life

    And we laughed oh and we cried
    And thought, oh, what a life

    Woo woo and we laughed oh and we cried
    And thought, oh, what a life

    And we laughed and we cried
    And thought, oh, what a life Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
