The lyrics for the song are here below. They describe Marija wanting her fellow children around the world to feel the same way she does about enjoying nice snowy days and also having the warm feeling of having a home. It’s a sweet yet sad song as she describes that she wants all the children to be enveloped in love and hope and have a place to call their home. A message that will resonate, as that there are children in Europe that don’t have a warm place to call their home.
Lets bring you up to speed!
