It was the first day of January, the ground was frozen
The wind was dyin' down, but it was almost snowin'
We ran outside to see our breath, to feel the cold inside our chests
Another winter in the Midwest

We hurried in that night, and held each other close
There's nothing greater than the arms of one you love when it is cold
And lyin' down to go to sleep, listening to my husband breathe
There was the most beautiful peace, cause

On the ordinary
Common path of every day
Are the extraordinary
Steps we take in grace

It was the fourth day of February,
My family came down
We're not together near enough, but that night we went out on the town
We got to talk, share some laughs, and reminisce about the past
Yeah, my family's always been like that, and


Now I've got a family of my own,
It takes more shape each day
In our deepest conversations, in the games we love to play
We found the truth that we can't see always passing silently
Upon the very air we breathe…
