lyrics

It’s snowing again
They say that it’s rare
This hasn’t happened in 20 odd years
But I wouldn’t know
I’m newly arrived
A provisional immigrant
Tryin' to survive
Ooh Vancouver
Ooh Vancouver

I’m here cause my son
Can get what he needs
In American schools he could not succeed
So we packed up our lives
And drove from our home
Leaving half of the family
To make it alone
Ooh Vancouver
Ooh Vancouver

It’s dark when I wake
Dark before I sleep
It fosters a feeling
I try not to keep
Now the snow’s disappearing
It’s raining instead
It rained all day yesterday
And rain lies ahead
Ooh Vancouver
Ooh Vancouver

The permanent residents
Shrug off the storms
Just something you do
Till the city’s reborn
When everything’s heavenly
A paradise found
But those are the months
We won’t be around
Ooh Vancouver
Ooh Vancouver
