"Ready For The Dark"  Larry Murante

from Christine Lavin Presents JUST ONE ANGEL

Larry Murante bio/photo

I love when the grass gets so frozen
that it breaks like glass
beneath your feet
When the clouds are
so high in the sky
the air is clear as it can be

Your lips are wet
and warm as Summer
sets a fire in my heart
We’re comin’ up
on winter solstice honey
Are you ready for
Ready for the dark

Chorus:
Ready for the dark
And the cold, cold night
Put another log
on the hearth
When the days are short
and the nights are longer
You gotta get
ready for the dark

Winter makes me
pull you in much closer
Tell you ‘bout the things
been on my mind
How your touch
always brings me comfort
for you I’ll always lay it on the line

Lay it on the line
like a loyal soldier
up on the wall there standing guard
It’s a wild night nature’s weildin’
honey are ya ready for
Ready for the dark

Chorus:
Ready for the dark
And the cold, cold night
Put another log
on the hearth
When the days are short
and the nights are longer
you gotta get
ready for the dark

Bridge:
When the sun
Starts huggin’ the horizon
Honey that’s my cue
to hug a little more with you
and as each day goes by
you and I make more light
shine through
A little more light each day
all the way to June

Winter is the time  
for cold reflection
for giving thanks
to the ones we love
to look inside for more direction
I look at you and all I think of...

is how I’m gonna wrap
my arms around you
and watch this fire spit and spark
on this quiet, cold December evening
I’m so ready for
Ready for the dark

Chorus
