lyrics

Sssssh
Quiet
Sssshhhh
Quiet
Shhhhhh
Quiet
Shhh
Quiet

The things I trashed in my distress
The hopes I smashed oh what a mess
There is time still to repair
If I step I upon the bottom stair

And if they sway or if they shift
This is no ordinary gift
A thank you rests upon my lip
I make it up another step

It makes me smile when I think how
I thought: Oh, I’ve reached the bottom now
I had miles left to go
My path lost in the snow

Sssssh
Quiet
Sssshhhh
Quiet
Shhhhhh
Quiet
Shhh
Quiet

All I trashed in my distress
My hope I smashed, oh what a mess
There is time to start repair
I step upon the bottom stair

And if they sway or if they shift
This is no ordinary gift
A thank you rests upon my lip
And I take another step

Sssssh
Quiet
Sssshhhh
Quiet
Shhhhhh
Quiet
Shhh
Quiet
