The Darkest Night of the Year

The darkest night of the year
(Lyrics: Malin Kjelsrud)

It could have been so bad
chances were I’d be sad
I could have been on my own
totally alone

I might have closed the door
or stared down at the floor
wondered where you were
and what you’d prefer

But you weren’t missed
my dear, you were right there
made sure I was properly kissed
on the darkest night of the year

I could have gone alone to bed
with confusing words in my head
wonder what’d happen next
sleeping unrelaxed
