about

A Christmas tune.

lyrics

The winter’s chill
Has crept into my bones
Heavy darkness
Makes my heart bow

But when I see your face
Tiny mothers and fathers and grandmothers
I know it won’t be much longer now

No saints, no gods
Only us, only stars
Will see the world to come
Will turn around the sun

When the light comes back

Silver bells and twinkling lights
Are the heralds of our shortening nights
The blue of winter’s hold
Will soon be green and gold
Christmastime means Spring is nearly here

The winter’s snow
Has covered up the ground
Trading color
For black and white

But the prettiest picture of all
Is the one that lets me see
That even in darkness
The world is so full of life

No saints, no gods
Only us, only stars
Will make the world to come
Will turn around the sun

When the light comes back

The scent of holly and a rose-colored haze
Are reminders of our lengthening days
The blue of winter’s hold
Will soon be green and gold
Christmastime means spring is nearly here

O holy night
The stars are brightly shining
They are beacons in this turbulent sea

When the light comes back

Roasting chestnuts and a crackling fire
Will distract us from the widening gyre
The blue of winter’s hold
Will soon be green and gold
Christmastime means spring is nearly here

The blue of winter’s form
Will soon be bright and warm
Christmastime means spring is nearly here
