Lyrics

WINTER MOON
Words and Music by Brooks Williams

Verse One

Winter moon
Half a wafer nothing more
Throwing moonbeams on my floor
Through my window

Pools of light on my guitar case
I move my bed to see your face

Chorus

Ring of diamonds, ring of light
Ring around the moon so bright
Snow it may, snow it might
Snow gonna fall on this town tonight

Verse Two

In the whisper

In the soft and wintry kiss
I must remember this
Pearls of wisdom
Gems of love and truth sublime

The silence speaks of the divine

Chorus

Ring of diamonds, ring of light
Ring around the moon so bright
Snow it may, snow it might
Snow gonna fall on this town tonight

Bridge
As you sleep she will go
On silken footstepss, you will not know
She will slip from your side
She pulls on you like she pulls on the tides

Chorus

Ring of diamonds, ring of light
Ring around the moon so bright
Snow it may, snow it might
Snow gonna fall on this town tonight
