lyrics

I wish I was the snow,
with nowhere else to go,
and nothing left to do
but fall.

Not minding where I go,
I'm such a carefree snow,
not minding where I finally
fall.

On wings,
the wind's sweet wings,
it's such a gentle ride.
I'm soft,
I'm breakable,
I'm breakable inside.
But I don't mind.
I don’t mind.

I wish I was the snow,
with nothing on my back,
and nowhere else to go
but fall.

I'd fall upon the ground,
I'd finally settle down.
Not minding that I'm in
a mound.

On wings,
the wind's sweet wings,
it's such a gentle ride.
I'm soft,
I'm breakable,
I'm breakable inside.
But I don't mind.
I don’t mind.

In performance and on record, Rachel delivers intelligent lyrics in a soulful, heartfelt manner backed by a cadre of some of Chicago’s best working musicians." ... more
