JOHN DENVER lyrics - Christmas, Like A Lullaby

The Children Of Bethlehem

Original and similar lyrics
(Paxton) The children of Bethlehem, One cold winter's night, Were wakened by singing, And a heavenly light. With whispers and murmurs, On pattering feet, The children of Bethlehem Came into the street. The people were sleeping, All safely in bed. The children heard singing In the sky overhead. They heard, 'Peace will be with you, Whoever you are. Oh, come to the stable Come, follow the Star!' And the children of Bethlehem, That cold winter's night, Came down to the stable; They followed the light. Now the roosters were crowing, At the dawning of day. The baby lay sleeping. In the manger he lay. The children of Bethlehem, Came in two by two. They came to the manger, That the Star brought them to. They came to the manger, Where the sweet Baby lay. The children of Bethlehem, Showed us the way.

ABOVE & BEYOND "Acoustic"
My love is like footsteps in this snow, baby I follow you everywhere you go, baby The palest light has come to wake you But you will never realize That I inspire the dreams that guide you, baby I follow the winds that bring the cold, baby I'll light a fire in your soul, baby The lightest touch of feathers falling My love may be invisible But I inspire the dreams that guide you, baby You're a half a world away But in my mind I whisper every single word you say And before you sleep at night You pray to me, your lucky star Your singing satellite Your singing satellite, your satellite Your singing satellite You're half a world away I'm stealing time from my own life All the hours that God sends I'm flying high on my red-eye And winding down the window My future is a Valentine Stolen in the perfect crime And I know I'm living out of line But with a blazing smile I'll die You're a half a world away But in my mind I whisper every single word you say And before you sleep at night You pray to me, your lucky star Your singing satellite

ALEXI MURDOCH "Towards The Sun"
It was cold, you had your hands inside your sleeves As we walked I heard the laughter in the leaves See the shadows lying now where once we stood And I would lie down right there if only I could The music came to me, it came across the sound And you laughed and shown and danced a circle around As we walked away, I saw a shadow on the ground There were stones inside my pockets that I found When I was younger I heard angels on the roof As thousand voices singing, each one was the truth Well a wise young lad, I left them in my youth And I have only just my memory for proof See a doorway open on a darker road Out in the garden, thread lies broken on the loom See a face that's smiling, quick around the wall And in the distance, mountains waiting for the fall See these knots around my hands, around my feet They would take me down my end for me to meet I grow weary of this struggle and this fight The morning's so far off from out here in the night The night is cold and you must leave me, this I know And empty all the places where we used to go Before I knew you I went climbing in the snow Called your name out to the darkness down below

Chasing You Into The Light

JACKSON BROWNE "World In Motion"
(Jackson Browne) Lying next to you in the dark Listening to your pounding heart The sheets are tangled around your waist I watch the dream moving on your face Feel you shake, hear your cries Running in the dark trying to open your eyes Come on baby, wake up I've followed you across the days and years Been there for the thrills and the tears Chasing you from state to state Waking, dreaming, I try to relate Why should I be somebody you fear When you're asleep and I'm so near? Don't even know why I'm in your dreams I got control over none of these things Morning comes, hard and bright And I'm exhausted from running after you all night Chasing you into the light Yeah I've been reaching for you baby As if I could reach you when you dream at night But I never can quite I ain't lying here awake by myself You better wake up There's something I want to talk to you about You better wake up I love you girl, tell the world I do There's nothing I wouldn't do for you I want to rescue you like you rescued me From a life of doubt and uncertainty That's why I'm chasing you Chasing you into the light Go for a walk on the pier with me baby Now as the dawn comes over the night Watching the stars in the sky disappear maybe You'll find a way to let go of your fright The sea is deep, the world is wide Ships are leaving for the other side This whole city will be waking soon And in the east Clouds are strung out behind the moon Chasing her into the light Wake up

Dreaming Of 4000

ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA "On The Third Day"
Saviour of the night came slowly on the silent river And the lord of life came following, his sins to be forgiven While the world sat back and laughed away the hours Till the dawning of the daybreak I heard them laugh I heard them cry I saw them praying to the sky I heard the wind howl in the trees Down there on bended knee And I see the light But I know I must be dreaming Feel the soul, quiet emotion Sail on by, helpless devotion If that's how it feels, it better be real Take care of your woman Or you'll never ever see the light Take heed of the warnin' Or you know it's gonna be too late Here, There, Everywhere They keep on movin' without fear They look me up, they look me down They press my body to the ground But I see the light, see the light it's comin' shinin' And on a Summers day When thoughts are drifting far away And life is good and real to see My world is saved and I am free But in the night Still I know I must be dreaming
