Where I came from were no hills at all The land was flat, the highway straight and wide My brother and I, we'd drive for hours, like we'd years instead of days Our faces as pale as the dirty snow
Once I knew there was a love divine Then came a time I thought it knew me not Who can forgive forgiveness when forgiveness is not? Only the land as white as snow
And the water it was icy As it washed over me And the moon shined above me Now this dry ground it bears no fruit at all Only poppies laugh under the crescent moon The road refuses strangers The land the seeds we sow Where might we find the lamb as white as snow
As boys we would go hunting in the woods To sleep, the night shun out the stars Now the wolves are every passing stranger Every face we cannot know
For only a heart could be as white as snow For only a heart could be as white as snow

Danielle from Raleigh, NcBeautiful, beautiful song.
Lisa from Plano, TxThis is one of my favorite songs on the new album. On the first listen, I told my son this sound sounded like O Come, O Come, Emmanuel. I had no idea it was actually based on that. This is such a moving and heartfelt piece!
Nishit from MumbaiBono's sounds great on this one, and the lyrics have a profound effect on you.
