Someone holds me safe and warm

Horses prance through  a  silver storm

^D-^C   ^D-^C    ^C-B-B       G - F#  G   F#-G-B
Figures dancing gracefully across my memory...

B    ^C-B    ^D  ^C-A
Far away, long  ago

^C  -  A      B    G   E    A - B
Glowing dim as an ember

B            ^C     B         B     ^E    A
Things my heart used to know

^C        A-B  G E-F#-G-E
Once upon a December
