Lyrics

I sit upon my worn out chair
And wonder at how the years moved on,
Staring through the crystal vase
And a rose in bloom now gone

Chorus
And now I know
That memories go
Like snowflakes in the sun
And so I'll pray
Each passing day
If I could only hold on to one
Snowflake, my only one

The years just seem to slip away
And memories fade of my true love
I'll not forget the day we first met
Though darkness waits beyond
It's the memory of my true love
And the day that we first met.

Chorus

And so I'll wait on my chair
And wonder where Snowflakes gone.

Song has soul and a delicate grace.

Like the use of strings against the piano. Nice harmony. The song builds nicely adding bits at a time to keep it building and this set up perfectly when the guitar came in. Beautifully arranged, a lot of thought put into the production, really nice work. If I could have rated the production and arrangement higher I would have.

I like the heart, space of the vocal on the first verse; really drew me in. Each instrument feels right in my face, in a good way and very intimate. For the most part the song flowed along, effortlessly.
