The Truth - Time O'The Signs - Midnight Snow
This song

Midnight Snow

Just a sad old head
Life’s getting you down?
You ain’t got no money
Not even your town
Well you came for the bright lights
But nothing's for free
The streets take more than they ever give
You can take it from me

So smoke up your last cigarette
This mission’s ‘bout to close
You’ll be spending the night
Out in the midnight snow
Spending the night
Out in the midnight snow

Some friends of yours
Been sleeping cross town
In an alley behind a bakery
Is where they all settle down
A half bottle of whiskey
And newspapers for bed clothes
Just sleeping it off
Out there in the midnight snow

Some folks get all the luck
Others nothing at all
While a few may drink from the cup
Most people’s back to the wall
Some cop says move on
You say hey mister got no place to go
‘Cept walking about out in the midnight snow

Just a sad old head
Like a man before he drowns
You’re reaching for help
But there’s no-one around
Just a sign that says ‘Jesus Saves’
But I wonder if he really know
That some of his flock
Sleep in the midnight snow
That some of his flock
Out there in the midnight snow.
