Snow
Grey Eye Glances

From the CD
Eventide Album Cover
"Eventide"
Universal/Polygram/Mercury/Parachute, 1997


Music and Lyrics by Dwayne Keith

This song was written by Dwayne Keith during the blizzard of 1993. He had to stay at home when Philadelphia was blanketed with three feet of snow, and it took several days to get many of the smaller streets dug out. There's a lot more to this story, but it has nothing to do with the song, so you will have to come to a show and hope that Dwayne tells the story again...

Dwayne and Eric met in grade school. They weren't interested in helping each other at that time however. They were mortal foes.  Actually, it was worse - they were team captains on opposing street hockey teams.  Fortunately, they became fast friends as well as roomates in a house that became known as "The Hills," and was the base for all of the early rehearsals for the band that was known at that time as Sojourn, and later changed its name to Grey Eye Glances.

For those of you who want to know, there is a reference to Eric Lindros on the CD Eventide.   He was on the Philadelphia Flyers when the CD came out.  Why don't you go to the Discussion Board on the main website and see if anyone has figured it out?  No hints Dwayne!



When I lie very still
When I listen real hard
When everything seems right
In the middle of the night
I ask, "Where have you been?"

I've been looking for signs
I've been running around
I've been walking in the park
Far too often after dark
Where have you gone?
We haven't spoken for so long
So I closed down the house
Headed back down the coast
I got lost in some job
And the warm L.A. smog
Drove me away
But I still can hear you saying

If it starts to snow
Well then it starts to snow
If we feel it go
Well we should let it go
I know this little place
That's big enough to hide
And if you stay real close
We both can fit inside
And if we lose control
Well then we lose control

So I found my way back
Said I'd never go back
After all that we've gone through
What more now is left to do
Surely you know
We've got a long, long way to go

And if it starts to snow
Well then it starts to snow
If we feel it go
Well we should let it go
I know this little place
That's big enough to hide
And if you stay real close
We both can fit inside
And if we lose control
Well then we lose control
But be sure that I'll be there
To help you make it through
Cause I'd sure love to be there
Looking back with you
