JOHN DENVER lyrics - Christmas, Like A Lullaby

Christmas Like A Lullaby

Original and similar lyrics
Christmas like a lullaby steals across the land A breeze upon the waters, rain fall on the sand We celebrate a baby born from spirit into man And Christmas like a lullaby steals across the land It's morning in Australia; In fact, it's Christmas day And Colorado never seemed so very far away Back where night has fallen and it's still Christmas Eve And snow is in the mountains that I always hate to leave Christmas bells are ringing there's presents 'neath the tree I know that it's been said before and now I know it's true That home is where the heart is and Christmas lives there too And on this morning Peace on Earth is still your fervent prayer And I can feel it being whispered softly everywhere And guns are called to silence and anger called to still And brotherhood and sisterhood surrounded by goodwill Christmas like a lullaby steals across the land A breeze upon the waters, rain fall on the sand We celebrate a baby aborn from spirit into man And Christmas like a lullaby steals across the land

The Land Of Christmas (Mary)

CARLY SIMON "Christmas Is Almost Here Again"
(Carly Simon) Take me into your hands Make me into your prayer Take me away to the land of Christmas And dismiss my fear Show me the way You see I need a way to pass through the pain Breathe it and bear it and rise up again Take me away to the land of Christmas Where I can receive your kiss Feel the strength in my heart And wail like a baby And sail through the storm Be tender as Mary With her newborn son Is feeling small a very good thing? Is feeling big really very small? Take me away to the land of Christmas Where I won't question your love at all And when I kneel to you It doesn't mean I'll get the message right Take me away to the land of Christmas Where I can't resist surrendering And I'll wail like a baby And sail through the storm Be tender like Mary With her newborn son On Christmas morn Tender as Mary With her newborn son

Anyone Else

COLLIN RAYE "Walls Came Down"
Baby, I bought wine and roses on my way home Yeah, I know we can't afford it but life doesn't last too long This world has gone half crazy And knocked us both to our knees I'm fumbling for the words to try and tell ya I love you for hangin' on to me When anyone else would've been long gone Packed it up and headed back home And not a soul would blame you after what I put you through Yeah, anyone else would've gone insane Called the game on account of rain Anyone else, anyone else, anyone else but you Mayday baby, all the rivets popped loose, it's a total tailspin Too much grindstone, too little time with you Girl, you know it's wearing thin Baby, let's trade in these teardrops for warm kisses on skin You got a drawer full IOUs and it's high time you called those things in When anyone else would've been long gone Packed it up and headed back home And not a soul would blame you after what I put you through Yeah, anyone else would've gone insane Called the game on account of rain Anyone else, anyone else, anyone else but you You've passed up so many chances to walk right out the door Instead of dodging a champagne cork and watchin' the wet clothes fall to the floor When anyone else would've been long gone Packed it up and headed back home And you can hide behind a Cheshire cat grin But you know it's true, yeah anyone else would've gone insane Called the game on account of rain Anyone else, anyone else, anyone but you Girl, anyone but you

The Christmas Spirit

JOHNNY CASH "The Christmas Spirit"
Praises sing to Christ the King And peace to men on earth On Christmas Eve I dreamed I traveled all around the earth And in my dream I saw and heard the ways the different people Hail the king whose star shone in the east and what a dream it was In London Town I walked around Piccadilly Circus A mass of people movin' here and there, I wondered where On every face at every place was, "Hurry up, I'm late" But a kind old man at a chestnut stand said, "Merry Christmas mate" And I felt the Christmas spirit In a little town nestled down in Bavaria Germany I walked along to see what the feeling there would be And here again was the busy din, the rushin', the yellin' But some kind boy said, "Frohliche Weihnachten" Not understanding the words but gettin' the buyin' and sellin' I felt the Christmas spirit In Bethlehem I heard a hymn, some distant choir sang And with other tourists I walked along to a Church as its bells rang Then I heard someone tell someone, "There's where Christ was born" I wonder if He looked like our baby looked on that first morn And then I really felt the Christmas spirit From a businessman in the Holy Land at a sidewalk souvenirshop I bought a little Bible since I'd already stopped And it was in Paris France somehow by chance that I took the Bible out As I flipped the pages I saw these words And I knew what it was all about For I read, "Fear not for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy Which shall be to all people For unto you He was born this day in the City of David, a Saviour Which is Christ the Lord" Then I took the little Holy Book, held it close and tight I closed my eyes and visualized the glory of that night So suddenly it came to me for when I awoke on Christmas Day I felt the Christmas spirit down deep inside to stay O little town of Bethlehem how still we see Thee lie Above Thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by Yet in Thy dark streets shineth the everlasting light The hopes and fears of all the years are met in Thee tonight

It Could Happen Again

COLLIN RAYE "Christmas-The Gift"
Johnny Cash intro.... One frozen night in 1914, at the height of WWI, the unthinkable happened. All along the entire western front, the British and German soldiers lay down they're weapons in an unofficial ceast fire to celebrate Christmas Eve together. They exchanged gifts and saw each other as brothers. And that piece lasted for two more days, when they were ordered back to battle. In those few days, though, men remembered the true meaning of christmas amongst the devastation, and it's a story that should never be forgotten... Through the smoke-filled night Silence rolls from both sides Aross a bloody battlefield It was a cold Christmas Eve In 1914 For those who were there it seemed unreal As time was still the Spirit moved the soldiers To lay down they're arms Raise they're voice in song And pretend for awhile The war was over If it could happen then, It could happen again A world torn apart To join hands and hearts To celebrate His birth And peace on this Earth If for one magic night We could finally give a reason not to fight Maybe there's a chance .. This time it might last As opposing sides approached Through broken words they spoke It wasn't long before they felt at ease They shared they're cigarettes What they had they used as gifts They didn't feel like enemies. With candles lit, They stood shoulder to shoulder And on that field they found True common ground And as they prayed They dreamed the war was over If it could happen then, It could happen again A world torn apart To join hands and hearts To celebrate His birth And peace on this Earth If for one magic night We could finally give a reason not to fight Maybe there's a chance .. This time it might last If it could happen then, It could happen again...
