Lyrics:

Did you know where you were headed
When last you looked into my eyes?
Did you know the end was coming
Or did it take you by surprise?

Did you ever think you'd wind up there
In your wildest dreams?
Outside in the cold?
So lost, alone, and...

Face down in the snow
Face down in the snow
Face down in the snow
Face down in the snow

And you seemed so very healthy
So much life and years yet to come
But all the things you planned to do
Are never to be done

And all the memories you had made
And your wildest dreams
Are outside in the cold
So lost, alone, and...

Face down in the snow
Face down in the snow
Face down in the snow
Face down in the snow

Face down in the snow
Face down in the snow
Face down in the snow
Face down in the snow

Face down in the snow (face down in the snow)
Face down in the snow (face down in the snow)
Face down in the snow (face down in the snow)
Face down in the snow (face down in the snow)

Song Notes:

Ironically, "Face Down In The Snow" was written on an extremely snowy weekend. Wait, that would be unironically, wouldn't it? Oh well, the point is it was quite a blizzard, with traffic accidents, and power outages all over the area.

We had luckily made it up to the cabin in Wisconsin for a big recording weekend before it hit. But shortly after arriving and settling in, we suddenly realized that Steve Owens, our keyboard player and John Owens' brother, was nowhere to be found. He was there...then he wasn't. Weird.

John's reaction was: "Jeez, I hope he's not face down in the snow somewhere." We all looked at each other, and said, "That's a song!"

Rather than head out in the blizzard to find him, we headed back downstairs to write the song. It's a song that couldn't have been written with Steve. Luckily, we didn't have to play it at any memorial for him or anything: Steve made it safely back home through the blizzard in one piece.
