From December

Album: ...And The Rest Will Follow (2005)
  • It's the first day
    Since I handed you your final rose
    In your house
    I'm staring out the window at our tree (We planted below)

    The heights of which
    You'll never
    Ever know

    You always
    Were there to rescue me
    From December

    In my minds eye
    I see you next to me as I'm on my knees
    It's in this place
    That you showed me how to ask eternity

    For shelter
    For comfort
    For relief

    I see our branches stretching
    To heights you'd not believe
    One day these leaves will reach you
    And there will be no more

    Pain

    You always gave me refuge
    Unconditional
    You always offered shelter
    From December's snow
    My chin still rests upon you
    While my feet they sway
    I wonder if you'll look the same
    When you embrace me
    On that day Writer/s: MICHAEL TORKE

  • Jordan from Bismarck, AzIt's not just some girl. And the girl didn't show just Andrew how to accept Christ. I believe it was his Grandmother, but it may have been his aunt. This girl also led Randy Torres to Christ.
