House In The Forest
(Believed to be a traditional song arranged by Michael Timmins)

There's a house in the forest
with snow all around it
and a light in a window
where no light should be.
'cause baby is crying
his voice is drifting
down a hallway to his mama,
wrapped in darkness, asleep.

Now mama is waking
the time she's checking
as she leaves the side of her man
deep in sleep.

In her arms now is baby
but she can't help but worry
that in his dreams he's seeing
what no child should see.

There's a house in the forest
with snow all around it
and peace, like a blanket,
covers all those who sleep.
