The Darkest Time

Hey Drey - you’re finally home
Come back from the city
The snow has settled on the ground
At this darkest time

Long nights and a bright birch fire
It takes work to just stay warm
I always see you in its light
‘Cause you never waste it

The darkest time releases love
No they can’t touch what flies above
The surest flight will grace the blue
I sure am glad that I love you

He’s got a hold on the western shore
And you’re gonna make it
Walk with him in the quiet storm
His great earth is shaking

It’s just another coming home
You know the things that you cannot see
It’s not a time to be alone
These are your blessings

The darkest time releases love
No they can’t touch what flies above
The surest flight will grace the blue
I sure am glad that I love you

And when you feel what you cannot say
And all your effort melts away
We can meet on the old Loop Road
And say nothing

We can rest at the water’s edge
For as long as it takes
This road we chose so long ago
It makes no mistakes

The darkest time releases love
No they can’t touch what flies above
The surest flight will grace the blue
I sure am glad that I love you
I love you
