Snowfall On The Sand Submit Correct Lyrics

Daddy always said he'd come back when the first snow came
Bringing treats like Santa Claus on Christmas day
Momma always said, "Son, don't you get your hopes too high
Daddy, he's a dreamer reaching for the sky"

Still I waited by the window at Christmas time
And I sat on the front steps as Easter rolled by
Then we moved to Arizona 'round the 4th of July
But Daddy never came, I waited just the same

And they say it never snows in Arizona
But I never stopped believing that it would
And before I'd go to sleep at night, I'd look up at the desert sky
Close my eyes, the same ol' prayer again
I'd wake up and see the snowfall on the sand

Part of growing up for me was learning way too soon
The difference between fantasy and cold hard truth
Momma liked to say, "Accept those things you cannot change"
She was scared I'd be like Dad and dream my life away

But in a corner of my mind, I kept a place for him
'Cause a promise lasts forever when you're just a kid
Yeah, he told me in a season, he'd be back again
But Daddy never came, I waited just the same

And they say it never snows in Arizona
But I never stopped believing that it would
And before I'd go to sleep at night, I'd look up at the desert sky
Close my eyes, the same ol' prayer again
I'd wake up and see the snowfall on the sand

Last night, my father's sister called me on the phone
Said, "Today, your father passed away, I thought that you should know
You were the one that he thought of as he left this world behind"
He said, Tell my boy, I'm going to find a way to come and say goodbye"

And they say it never snows in Arizona
But I'm looking out my window and it is
And I swear I can't believe my eyes to see the desert painted white
For a moment, we're together once again
As I see the snowfall on the sand
